Figure 2.1.3: Highest educational attainment by sex by age group
Percent of the population (age 25 to 64), Middlesex-London, 2016
More than 4 out of every 10 (41.4%) younger females aged 25 to 34 had a university bachelor's degree or higher in 2016. This was much higher than males in the same age group (28.1%).
There is a substantial difference between the percentage of the youngest (41.4%) and oldest females (21.7%) who have held a university bachelor's degree or higher.
Younger age groups of both females and males had a higher percent of university degree completion when compared to their older cohorts of the same sex. However, the increase in younger males is not keeping pace with younger females.
