Census 2021: How workforce qualification levels differ across England and Wales

The ONS have used Census 2021 data to explore how the qualification levels of resident workers and jobseekers differ between local authorities in England and Wales.

How qualified an area’s workforce is can indicate the quality of locally available jobs, whether they require higher levels of education and whether they are higher-paid. Areas with good educational attainment, opportunities and job markets are likely to have a richer local economy.

You can explore the highest and lowest ranked areas in the map, and see the areas where the workforce has a similar mix of qualification levels to where you live.
