Education at a Glance 2007

OECD Indicators

image of Education at a Glance 2007
OECD's annual Education at a Glance looks at who participates in education, what is spent on it, how education systems operate and the results achieved. The latter includes indicators on a wide range of outcomes, from comparisons of students’ performance in key subject areas to the impact of education on earnings and on adults’ chances of employment. New material in this 2007 edition includes data on how socio-economic background affects access to tertiary education, more data on participation in vocational programmes, trend data on graduation rates, trend data on enrolment rates, data on contractual arrangements of teachers, and data on evaluation policies for public schools.  This book includes StatLinks, urls linking to Excel® spreadsheets containing the background data.

Indicator A3 How many students finish tertiary education?

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This indicator first shows the current tertiary graduate output of educational systems, i.e. the percentage of the population in the typical age cohort for tertiary education that follows and successfully completes tertiary programmes, as well as the distribution of tertiary graduates across fields of education. The indicator then examines the number of science graduates in relation to employed persons. It also considers whether gender differences concerning motivation in mathematics at the age of 15 may affect tertiary graduation rates. Finally, the indicator shows survival rates at the tertiary level, i.e. the proportion of new entrants into the specified level of education who successfully complete a first qualification.
