Though you have to remember that only a portion of the population goes to college at all. IIRC 45-50% USians have some college (~30% have degrees). For roughly 50% of the population they (1) didn't go to college at all and (2) probably live within 50 miles of where they were born. I believe those are the major factors underlying that statistic (which I've seen before but don't know how true it is.)
