More women in higher education than men

According to the National Statistics Office (ONE) there are 5,086,296 women in the country, more than the 5,082,867 men.

In addition, according to ONE director, Alexandra Izquierdo, women are more likely to study at university, with 59.6% of the higher education students being women compared to 40.4% men. She said that 63.6% of those studying master’s degrees are women.

However, despite the fact that a higher percentage of women are enrolled in post-secondary school programs, the rate of employment of women with university degrees is lower than that of men with 81.3% of men having a job post university and only 66.3% of women.
