Forty per cent of the completers of higher or doctorate level education had degrees in social sciences. The large proportion of social sciences is explained by the fact that in addition to actual social sciences, this main group also includes education, law and business. The next largest groups of the highly educated population were found in both humanities and arts, and technology. Those with doctorate level degrees distribute more evenly across the fields of science. The fields of social, medical and health, and natural sciences each had around one-fifth of the persons with doctorate level degrees.
