An in depth analysis shows the effects that poverty generates on a nation's well-being by measuring the quality of its human capital. The importance of education as a governmental action against poverty has been broadened. Nowadays, education level is used to measure the poverty rate. School attendance, enrolment and academic level have been correlated with generated income. This paper studies the social and economic effects that poverty inflicts on OECD countries by using relevant indicators to show the relationships between educational level and poverty rate over a tenyear period, proving that there are some academic achievements connected with well-being.
