Israeli kollel numbers

The Jewish worker quotes Mishpacha magazine, citing Israeli government sources, on the number of people learning Torah full-time in Israel:
53,500 learning in Kollel
41,000 learning in Yeshiva
23,000 learning in Yeshiva Ketana
Putting aside politics and everyting, 117,000 people learning Torah is phenomenal.

But these numbers--how is this possible? In a society with more children than adults there are more married men learning full-time then kids or unmarried Beis Midrash bochurim?
