The Costa Rica News (TCRN) Is it true that Costa Rica has a highly qualified working population? Such generalization may be true when one compares the indicators with other Latin American nations´, but more than two-thirds of the country’s workers belong to the category of unskilled workers.
This means that on average, 69% of the working population over 20 years only has complete or incomplete primary education, according to data collected by the economists Roberto del Valle and Andrés Fernández from the Survey Households and Multiple Purposes (2001-2009).
However, the working population of Costa Rica is increasing its educational years. It is evident that the population without formal education or only primary school is decreasing, while the number of Costa Ricans with secondary and higher education is on the rise. EF
