Education outcomes

The OECD quantifies the financial returns to an individual achieving a certain level of education as compared to someone completing the education level below, and cross-country comparisons are enabled by expressing these in PPP terms (figure 7.4). Policy makers can use these data to assess the economic benefits to growth, society, and individuals through education investments.
