Correction notice

An incorrect variable was used to identify the field of study in tables E.2.6, E.2.7, E.2.10 and E.2.11. The correct variable has now been used, resulting in the revision of all of the data points in these tables.
In a previous version, the footnote for E.2.6 provided further clarification on “college”. It has now been updated with a more appropriate footnote to provide clarification on “university”.
