Why are my experiences contradicting the statistics?

According to this statistic, http://nces.ed.gov/programs/digest/d13/tables/dt13_104.20.asp, only 40% of people between the ages of 25 and 29 have Bachelor's Degrees. However, it's difficult for me just to find a 23 year old that doesn't have one. I know my social circle may be bias, but that's the only contradictory source. I'll look up random strangers facebook, and they've all had one since before they turned 23 or are in process of doing so if under 23. And it's not just facebook. I'll go to online dating sites, and anyone I look up, of either gender, has had, or will have, a Bachelor's Degree before turning 23. And it's the same thing with twitter, Linkedin, youtube, or any other form of social media that I use. What's going on?

@doetwin,
What's going on is that you're obsessed.

You need to get out in the world. It sounds like you have surveyed your own home town.

@PUNKEY,
Did you not read everything? I go on every form of social media and it's the same. That's not just my hometown.

@doetwin,
You keep asking this same question here regardless what the answers people have provided. You use various different nicknames. Apparently you'll keep on asking without reading the responses. This sort of obsessive behavior might be an indication that you need professional help.

Seriously.

Obsessing over a matter of literally months.

Dude. What ******* difference does in make in a life of 80 years or more if you graduated when you were 22 years and 11 months old, or 23 years and 2 months old?

I'd really like to know why it's so important to you that everyone in the world do something on the exact same time schedule.

Go make yourself a sandwich and a cup of tea and relax.
