Hide / Show Abstract

The quality of human capital is a key factor in the social and economic well-being of a region. Education provides individuals with knowledge and competencies to participate effectively in society and to break the cycle of disadvantage. Still, in 2012 one-fourth of the OECD population had only a basic education, and in most of the regions in Turkey, Mexico and Portugal, and in some regions in Australia and Spain, this proportion was as high as 50%.
