School Enrollment

Based on U.S. Census data the majority of school enrollment in Benton County (60.2%) is in college or graduate school. This may largely be influenced by the Oregon State University and Linn-Benton Community College campuses located in Corvallis. College or graduate school enrollment is much lower in Oregon (27.6%) and the United States (26.8%) than in Benton County.
