International Data on Educational Attainment: Updates and Implications

Robert Barro and Jong-Wha Lee ()

Oxford Economic Papers, 2001, vol. 53, issue 3, 541-63

Abstract: This paper presents a data set that improves the measurement of educational attainment for a broad group of countries. We extend our previous estimates to 1995 for educational attainment for the population over ages 15 and 25. We also provide projections for 2000. We discuss the estimation method for the measures of educational attainment and relate our estimates to alternative international measures of human capital stocks.
