OECD Regions at a Glance 2016

OECD Regions at a Glance shows how regions and cities contribute to national economic growth and well-being. This edition updates more than 40 region-by-region indicators to assess disparities within countries and their evolution over the past 15 years. The report covers all the OECD member countries and, where data are available, Brazil, People’s Republic of China, Colombia, India, Latvia, Lithuania, Peru, the Russian Federation and South Africa.
New to this edition:
- A comprehensive picture of well-being in the 391 OECD regions based on 11 aspects that shape people's lives: income, jobs, housing, education, health, environment, safety, civic engagement and governance, access to services, social connections, and life satisfaction.  
- Recent trends in subnational government finances and indicators on how competencies are allocated and co-ordinated across levels of governments.

Hide / Show Abstract

Educational outcomes are some of the most influential determinants of current and future well-being. Evidence shows that highly educated individuals are more likely to have better health and higher earnings than the less well educated. From an aggregate perspective, a well-educated workforce is also crucial for raising productivity, ensuring resiliency and adaptability to the changing needs of the labour market but also for making use of innovation. Both the capacity to generate and absorb innovation are affected by the quality of the human capital, which in turn is often enhanced by the education levels of the workforce.
