Longitudinal analyses of education and training 90.9% of young people with an upper secondary level qualification by the age of 25

Neuchâtel, 23 January 2018 (FSO) - In 2015, 90.9% of young people had obtained an upper secondary level qualification by the age of 25. For Swiss nationals born in Switzerland, this percentage was 94.0%. Considerable differences were seen between the sexes, migrant status, commune types, language regions and cantons. Regardless of the region considered, qualification rates in the cities were comparatively low. These are some of the findings of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) that has used for the first time census data and data from modernised surveys of the education system for this purpose.
