Higher education does not guarantee high incomes in Kyrgyzstan

The National Statistical Committee of Kyrgyzstan presented data on influence of the level of education of the head of a family on income in cities and rural areas.

At the end of 2017, the average per capita income of the population of Kyrgyzstan (per person, regardless of age) was 4,739.4 soms. It has grown by 749.9 soms for five years.

The figure in the cities formed in the amount of 5,691.8 soms, and in the villages — 4,500.9 soms.

Despite these figures, it is necessary to understand that a higher or vocational education still gives more chances to get a good and well-paid job.
