Global Educational Attainment 1970 to 2015

$79 / year

This dataset provides estimates of average years of educational attainment per capita for people over the age of 15 for the years 1970-2015 by year, sex, and age group for 188 countries, 21 GBD regions, 7 GBD super regions, and the global aggregate. Age-standardized and population-weighted estimates are included for females 15-44 and for both sexes for the age group 25+.

Complexity

The data are results from a global analysis of educational attainment spanning the last 50 years. These data are an update to earlier estimates (Educational Attainment and Child Mortality Estimates by Country 1970-2009) and inform the policy report “A Hand Up: Global Progress towards Universal Education,” as well as the Social Determinants of Health Visualization.
