Highly educated women attend most courses

In the second quarter of 2005, highly educated women were in the majority at courses, seminars, conferences etc aimed at improving job skills. 22 per cent of all highly educated women took part in such activities, compared with 19 per cent of men.

328 000 people, or 14 per cent of all employees, had taken part in such activities in the past four weeks. The participation rate for employed men and women was 13 and 15 per cent respectively. Compared with the second quarter of 2004, the rate has only increased for women.

Figures have been available for all quarters since 2003. In the future, the results will be commented on based on annual averages. However, figures based both on quarterly results and the annual averages will be available in StatBank Norway.
