City Statistics: Educational attainment

The educational attainment of the population shows the distribution of the qualifications obtained during education. Post-compulsory education reduces the perils of the labour market and increases the chances of having a well-paid job.

Data from the RS from reference year t are surveyed at 31 December of year t-1 in order to comply with Eurostat directives (see methodology, in French or German only). The data for 2020 therefore represent the situation before the COVID-19 pandemic.


For more information about the methodology, please see the pages in French or German.
