In the Wellington Region, there were more people in the workforce with a Management and commerce qualification than any other field of qualification in 2018.
Field of Qualification presents the primary field of study for the highest qualification the person has received. Field of study for lower level qualifications are not collected.
Fields of study relate to the type of work and types of industries in the area, but may also indicate people working in areas which don’t match their training. As with other workforce related topics, field of study helps to build up a picture of the economic and employment role of an area, as distinct from its residential role.
Field of Qualification information should be looked at in conjunction with Workforce Industries , Workforce Occupation and Workforce Level of Qualification data as well as Field and Level of Qualifications data for the residents for a clearer picture of the skills available in Wellington Region's workforce.
