Nearly Half Of 25-64-Year-Olds In The Midlands Have A Third Level Qualification

The latest CSO figures have shown Ireland's strengths in third-level education.

Almost half of people aged 25-64 in the midlands have a third level qualification.

The latest figures from the Central Statistics Office shows nationally, 52% of people in that age range in the country have graduated from a third-level institute, the highest in the EU.

That figure is also an increase of 10% in Ireland, compared to a decade ago.

Less than 3% of people in the region have only a primary level or no formal level of education, which is among the lowest in the country.
