and
In 2000 more Danish women than men were en-
rolled for long-cycle higher education for the first
time. Women are also clearly overrepresented at me-
dium-cycle higher education, while men still consti-
tute the majority of those enrolled for vocational ed-
ucation and training. If this trend continues, women
will in the long term be more highly educated than
men.
The population’s general educational level has in-
creased markedly in the recent 30 years. While 41 per
cent of the 25-64-year olds had basic school as their
highest education level in 1981, this was true of only
20 per cent in 2013. Recently, a larger proportion of
the population have graduated from higher education
and training. While 14 per cent of the 25-64-year-
olds had a higher education in 1981, this has in-
creased to almost 33 per cent in 2013.
