Population with higher education

The world’s population with higher education has grown from 12.1% of the global adult population aged 15+ in 2008 to 13.3% in 2013. This is translating into higher incomes and a swell in numbers of the top earning socio economic groups. Canada had the world’s highest percentage of its population aged 15+ with higher education at 36.0% of its total population in 2013 due to government prioritisation of higher education. At the other end of the scale is Kenya, with just 2.4% in the same year.
