Register-based Census 2011

The level of education of the population relates to the highest level of education completed. In Austria, 1 065 000 people have completed a tertiary education according to the Register-based Census 2011. Compared to the last census 2001 this number has risen by about 333 600 people, or 45.6%. The number of graduates on the secondary level has also risen. Young women reached already a higher level of education than their male companions.

During the last ten years the overall education level has risen again: the younger generation is better educated, and the old, generally less educated (because of worse education possibilities in the past) people are dying away. The percentage of the population with more than just a lower secondary degree has risen from 60.8% to 71.7% or in other words by almost one million people.
