On That Big Study About How the Student Debt Nightmare Is in Your Head? It's Garbage

"Of all the households in that study, only about 1711 have "household heads" that are younger than 40. That's what they're extrapolating from. (And, intriguingly, a small number of those have a head of household younger than 18.) This is not a big sample!"

1,711 is plenty - the standard error on a group of that size is quite low.
