Chart of the Week: The Increase in Undergraduates Receiving Federal Loans

This week we take a look at what has happened to the number of undergraduate students receiving federal Stafford loan aid between 1999 and 2009. We see that the number of annual recipients increased by 75 percent during this time, going from 4.15 million just over a decade ago to nearly 7.3 million students last year, an indication that students are relying more and more on federal loan programs to pay for college.
