Women and Men in Ireland 2009

The CSO have released theie latest version of the Women and Men in Ireland publication.  The release provides some interesting statistics across a range of areas: population, employment, lifestyles, education, health, crime and transport.

From a third level education perspective there are some interesting patterns.  Here is a graph of the percentage of the population aged between 25 to 34 who have a third level qualification. Click to enlarge.

The percentages were almost identical in 1999: men 26.7% and women 27.5%.  Although the percentage has been rising for both genders there has been a huge divergence in the series since 1999.  As of 2009, 51% of women in the 25-34 age category had a third level qualification as to only 38.7% of men.
