Chart 7 - percentage of residents who are graduates, by region

Chart 7 is some background to chart 6.  It shows, per region, what percentage of the people living there (whose salary is known) are graduates.

Non-graduates outnumber graduates at least 3:1 in most regions, and in all but one region non-graduates are the majority

While most regions have 23% to 31% graduates, Rest of South East has 34% graduates, Outer London has 44% graduates, and Inner London has 64% - the only region where the majority of residents are graduates.

Graduates in Inner London make a large difference to the average salary for their region

The peak in the relative size of the graduate population in Inner London, coupled with the peak in salary of graduates in the same region as shown in chart 6, means that there will be a disproportionately large peak in the average salary across all residents in Inner London.
