international Data on Educational Attainment

Abstract

The two EXCEL files contain updates of the data on educational attainment at various levels for a broad number of countries in the world (see Barro, Robert J. and Jong-Wha Lee, "International Data on Educational Attainment: Updates and Implications," manuscript, Harvard University, February 2000.). The data set provides the estimates for two different age groups- over age 15 and over age 25- and a breakdown by sex at five-year intervals for the years 1960-2000. It also includes the number of years of schooling achieved by the average person at the various levels and at all levels of schooling combined.
