Figure 6.5.9: Using sunscreen by education
Percent of adults (25+) who report using sunscreen in the last 12 months, Middlesex-London, 2015 and 2017
Those with more education reported higher rates of always or often applying sunscreen when exposed to the sun. More than half of those with post-secondary education reported the application of sunscreen always or often when exposed to the sun (52.9%) compared to 20.3% of those with less than a secondary school education.
Those in the lowest education group had much higher rates of reporting rarely or never wearing sunscreen.
