 Hi Ted

In Australia, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is our official
statistics gatherer. Most of the ABS publications can be accessed free
of charge from their website www.abs.gov.au 

The publications I think you will find most useful are:

Human Resources by Selected Qualifications and Occupations 2001 Bulletin

This bulletin is based on the 2001 national census - figures from the
latest census in 2006 are not yet available.

Education and Work May 2005 Bulletin 6227.0

You may find other relevant publications by searching the site.

Hope this helps

Subject: [Air-l] International Graduate Degree Info


After beating my head against the digital wall for a while, I decided to
access our collective intelligence.

I am looking for statistics on the percentage of national adult
populations who have earned a graduate degree. I have this information
for the US (for the curious out there, as of 2005, 6.8% hold Masters and
1.5% Ph.D.), but have been unable to track down similar stats for any
place else. Undergrad information is easy, the grad stuff is proving
more challenging. I suppose it is a matter of knowing where to look.

Broader information on regions, say Asia, Latin America, or Europe as a
whole would also be helpful.

Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be greatly
