Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators is the authoritative source for accurate and relevant information on the state of education around the world. It provides data on the structure, finances, and performance of education systems in more than 40 countries, including OECD members and G20 partners.



Featuring more than 100 charts, 200 tables, and over 100 000 figures, Education at a Glance provides key information on the ouput of educational institutions; the impact of learning across countries; the financial and human resources invested in education; access, participation and progression in education; and the learning environment and organisation of schools.



In the 2013 edition, new material includes:

  • More recent data on the economic crisis, showing that education remains the best protection against unemployment;
  • More detailed data on programme orientation (general versus vocational) in secondary and tertiary education;
  • An analysis of how work status (full-time, part-time, involuntary part-time) is related to individuals’ level of education;
  • A review of the relationship between fields of education and tuition fees, unemployment rates and earnings premiums;
  • An indicator showing how many of the students who enter a tertiary programme ultimately graduate from it;
  • An indicator on the relationship between educational attainment and two health-related concerns, obesity and smoking; and
  • Trend data covering the years 1995 to 2010-11 for all the key indicators.



    The Excel™ spreadsheets used to create the tables and charts in Education at a Glance are available via the StatLinks provided throughout the publication.

Italy

Spending per student in primary and secondary schools has remained flat for the past 15 years, increasing by only 0.5% in real terms between 1995 and 2010. Italy is the only OECD country that did not increase spending per student in primary and secondary education since 1995. By contrast, OECD countries increased spending per student at these levels of education by 62%, on average, during this period. While spending per tertiary student rose by 39% over the same 15-year period, well above the 15% OECD average increase, this was largely due to an increase of funding from private sources. Nevertheless, spending for tertiary-level students (USD 9 580, in PPP) remains well below the OECD average (USD 13 528).
