Unemployed people generally make less than $30k.   Maybe it is simply the
case that far more BYU grads simply don't seek full-time employment.  Stay
at home Moms or part-time working Moms and the like.  This was mentioned
briefly in the last paragraph of the report, but I didn't look closely
enough to see if the numbers were already adjusted for such things.
