What percent of the population has a doctorate?

Asked by Lachlan Frost

On average, only 1.1 per cent of the world’s 25-64 year olds who have been to university, have a PhD. So it seems like a PhD is pretty rare – but how rare is it where you are? In the USA, 2.0 per cent of the population has a doctorate, with the UK not far behind at 1.4 per cent.
