Education Indicators in Focus

Education Indicators in Focus is a recurring series of briefs that highlight specific indicators in OECD’s Education at a Glance that are of particular interest to policy makers and practitioners. They provide a detailed look into current issues in pre-primary, primary and secondary education, higher education, and adult outcomes from a global perspective, and contain an engaging mix of text, tables and charts that describe the international context of the most pressing questions in education policy and practice.

Educational attainment and investment in education in Ibero-American countries

Despite the geographical distances between them, Ibero-American countries share some similarities in their educational attainment rates and private expenditure on educational institutions as a percentage of GDP. Across all Ibero-American countries covered in Education at a Glance, there is a higher than average share of adults without an upper secondary education. Even though the gap is declining, the share of less well-educated adults still remains higher than the OECD average among the younger generation. In parallel, private expenditure on educational institutions as a percentage of GDP is generally higher in Ibero-American countries than on average across OECD countries.
