The U.S. ranks 15th in tertiary graduation rates

According to the OECD, the United States had a tertiary (college and university) graduation rate of 36.5% in 2007. This rate was high enough to allow the United States to rank fifteenth out of 30 countries in this category. Iceland ranks first in this category with a tertiary graduation rate of 63.1%.
