Figure 3.4 is titled "Heavy Alcohol Use among Adults Aged 18 or Older, by College Attendance and Age: 2004." It is a bar graph, where college enrollment by age group is shown on the horizontal axis, and the percentage using in the past month is shown on the vertical axis. The four college enrollment/age categories are (1) aged 18 to 22 and enrolled full time in college, (2) aged 18 to 22 and not enrolled full time in college, (3) aged 26 or older and graduated from college, and (4) aged 26 or older and some college or less.

Among 18 to 22 year olds enrolled in college full time, 18.6 percent were past month heavy alcohol users.
Among 18 to 22 year olds not enrolled full time in college, 13.5 percent were past month heavy alcohol users.
