The latest study research the UK labour market has found that six in every ten people who live in Inner London are graduates.

The increasing density of graduates working in the City reflects an overall rise in graduates across the UK. The report from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) found that percentage of graduates in the population has risen from 17% in 1992 to 38% this year.

Graduates in 2013 are more likely to hold jobs than people with lesser or no qualifications.

On the other hand, the percentage of graduates employed in non-graduate jobs has risen since the start of the financial crisis, suggesting the increasing supply of graduates has made applying for graduate jobs more competitive.

Graduates were also found to enjoy greater salaries deeper into their careers than non-graduates. Read more about the state of graduate salaries in 2013.
