Millennials are the most educated generation - Stats SA
StatsSA has released results from its 2018 thematic report on education and labour market outcomes.
The report's data analysis compares three generations. 1969 -1979, 1980 - 1999 Millenial generation and the Born-free generation born from 1994.
It compares the gains made in educational participation through studying issues such as the gender gaps and the labour market.
Stats SA Director responsible for Education Statistics, Seble Worku talks to Clement Manyathela on The Midday Report.
She says the findings show all the generations, particular GenX, and the Millenials made a substantial investment in their human capital.

From a gender gap perspective, she says the number of Born-free and Millenial women who completed secondary school has risen.
With regard to tertiary education institutions, she says black African participation has always been lower than other population groups, with the biggest gain among the Indian population.
