Almost all countries around the world have users who are high school graduates or higher. However, many low-and-middle-income countries have a much lower percentage of users who complete college or graduate school.

However, there are some exceptions to this - for example, Israel has one of the highest percentages of college graduates in the world but also has one of the largest populations of elderly people.
