Since 1984, the percentage of college students aged 16 to 24 who work full- or part-time has increased from 49 to 57 percent. The share of students working full-time while going to school full-time has nearly doubled, rising from 5.6 percent in 1985 to 10.4 percent in 2000. In 2000, 828,000 full-time students worked full-time, compared to 366,000 in 1985 (Jonathan M. Orszag, Peter R. Orszag, and Diane M. Whitmore, 2001).

I could tell that the information being given was factual and thorough and that there are many different aspects to this study.
