The present study investigates the social and educational characteristics of the Ecuadorians aged 25-64 using data analysis tools. The investigation was realized in the Faculty of Economics of the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador during the spring semester of the academic year 2015-2016. The source of the data are the National Survey of Employment, Unemployment and Underemployment and the publication of the OECD "Education at a Glance 2015". The analysis presents the social and educational profile of persons under study and realizes a comparison of their instruction level with other countries of Latin America, USA and European Union. Also a risk analysis investigates the relative risk comparing variables such as activity condition with instruction level, sex, use of smartphone, use of computer and internet.
