2016 International Education Statistics from the OECD

Education at a Glance 2016 “… is the authoritative source for information on the state of education around the world. It provides key information on the output of educational institutions; the impact of learning across countries; the financial and human resources invested in education; access, participation and progression in education; and the learning environment and organisation of schools. The 2016 edition introduces a new indicator on the completion rate of tertiary students and another one on school leaders. It provides more trend data and analysis on diverse topics, such as: teachers’ salaries; graduation rates; expenditure on education; enrolment rates; young adults who are neither employed nor in education or training; class size; and teaching hours. The publication examines gender imbalance in education and the profile of students who attend, and graduate from, vocational education. The report covers all 35 OECD countries and a number of partner countries (Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Lithuania, the Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia and South Africa).This edition includes more than 125 figures and 145 tables.”

Well worth a look for a comprehensive overview of selected educational systems. Each country has a separate report as well as being part of the aggregate statistics. It is interesting to note where the United States is in comparison to other instructional systems. There are more than a few surprises. Compare this report with Comparative Indicators of Education in the United States and Other G-20 Countries: 2015 from the NCES.
