It is easier to state the number of people who do have a degree than those who don't. Only 25% of the population have a BS/BA degree, 8-10% have a MS/MA degree and 1% have a PhD. This means that 75% of the American population does not have a degree or did not finish one. A recent study showed that 75% of the students who start a 2 year degree program do not finish. This shows that a 75% start in a college, but drop out.
