Education at a Glance 2010

OECD Indicators

Across OECD countries, governments are seeking policies to make education more effective while searching for additional resources to meet the increasing demand for education.

The 2010 edition of Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators enables countries to see themselves in the light of other countries’ performance. It provides a rich, comparable and up-to-date array of indicators on systems and represents the consensus of professional thinking on how to measure the current state of education internationally.

The indicators show who participates in education, how much is spent on it and how education systems operate. They also illustrate a wide range of educational outcomes, comparing, for example, student performance in key subject areas and the impact of education on earnings and on adults’ chances of employment.

New material in this edition includes:

  • indicators on school choice and the parent voice in education;
  • an indicator on the long-term economic impact of improved learning outcomes;
  • an indicator benchmarking labour costs by educational levels across OECD countries;
  • a review of trends in educational attainment;
  • an update on the human and financial resources invested in education;
  • an indicator comparing salaries of teachers to earnings of workers with tertiary education;
  • a review of adult participation in education and training.

Hide / Show Abstract

This indicator compares OECD countries with respect to the division of spending between current and capital expenditure and the distribution of current expenditure. It is affected by teachers’ salaries (see Indicator D3), pension systems, the age distribution of teachers, the size of the non-teaching staff employed in education (see Indicator D2) and the degree to which expanded enrolments require the construction of new buildings. It also compares how OECD countries’ spending is distributed among these different functions of educational institutions.
