Level of education attained by the population aged between 30 and 34 years

This indicator informs on the educational attainment of the population aged between 30 and 34 years. Its relevance lies in the positive impact that completing higher education has on a personal, social and economic level. The European headline target for 2020 is that the percentage of people in this age group holding a tertiary education qualification should exceed 40%.

According to the International Standard Classification of Education and its equivalence in Spain, the “basic education” level includes primary education, as well as the first cycle of secondary education (levels 1 and 2 of the UNESCO’s ISCED), the “intermediate education” level includes the second cycle of secondary education (levels 3 and 4 of the UNESCO’s ISCED) and the higher education” level includes short-cycle tertiary education, degrees in tertiary education, master’s degrees, specialisation and doctorates (levels 5 to 8 of the UNESCO’s ISCED).
