The increase in high school and university graduates experienced in the second half of the last century can be observed in the generation born prior to the 1980s. This explains why the graph shows a significant incidence of population aged between 25 and 34 years with higher education qualifications. This indicator is very similar to that of the United States, one of the countries with the highest percentage of young people with higher education qualifications in the world. Despite this, the two countries differ greatly in the basic education (primary education and first phase of secondary education levels attained). The graph shows clearly that Spain is far behind the United States in the proportion of young people who have attained a level of intermmediate eduaction (secondary 2nd phase and post-secondary education). It is worth highlighting that this difference has decreased in the last ten years, although only slightly.
