10,032 people or 71.6% of the Mosman Council area's resident workers have a tertiary qualification.

The local labour force includes all employed people who are resident in the local area regardless of where they work. In other words, it is the people who live locally and therefore have the potential to work locally and is an important resource for the local economy.
