The horizontal bar chart illustrates how post-school qualifications at different levels were in Australia according to the sexes in 1999.
It is evident from the chart that considerably more females than males acquired many qualifications.
The proportion of woman holding skilled vocational diploma was roughly 90%, 80% higher than men. However, the rate among females who had undergraduate diploma was 35%, twofold lower than those for males. Woman who held bachelor’s degree constituted nearly 50% compared with the figure for men when more than 50% of them held it.
Of those Australian people who had after-school qualifications, some 30% females held postgraduate diploma so 70% males did. The percentage of males holding master’s degree was one-fifth higher than females constituting 40%.
