I think some eye-catching points got lost in my large piece of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation report on Poverty in the UK, so I’m re-posting excerpts:
‘The proportion of working-age adults with higher education qualifications has nearly
doubled in England, Wales and Scotland; 45% of working-age adults in Scotland, 38% in
England and 35% in Wales have these qualifications.’ (P5)
Clearly comparable, 7% more likely to have HE qualifications in Scotland.
