Educational structure of population
Statistics on the educational structure of the population describe qualifications attained by the population aged 15 or over after comprehensive school, lower secondary school or elementary school. The data are based on Statistics Finland’s Register of Completed Education and Degrees and published once a year.
By the end of 2020, altogether 3,469,000 persons, or 74 per cent of the population aged 15 or over, had completed a qualification after basic level education. Fifty years earlier, 880,000 persons, or 25 per cent of the population, had completed a qualification.
