Methodological note

The share of the population aged 30–34 years who have successfully completed university or university-like (tertiary-level) education with an education level CINE-97 (ISCED) (International Standard Classification of Education) of 5–6.

The tertiary educational attainment is broken down into the codes 5 and 6 of CINE-97 (ISCED):

  • Code 5. First cycle of tertiary-level education
  • Code 6. Second cycle of tertiary-level education

In the case of Catalonia and Spain the data come from the Labor Force Survey of INE.

This indicator measures the Europe 2020 strategy's headline target to increase the share of the 30–34 years old having completed tertiary or equivalent education to at least 40% in 2020 for the EU as a whole.
