PISA 2012 Financial Literacy Data Tables

These web tables document the performance of U.S. 15-year-old students on a first-ever administration of the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) financial literacy assessment. The PISA financial literacy assessment was conducted in 18 of the 65 education systems that participated in main PISA, and assessed studentsí knowledge and understanding of fundamental elements of the financial world, including financial concepts, products, and risks. Results include the average scores for the United States and other education systems; the percentages of students reaching five proficiency levels in financial literacy; and breakouts of performance by sex, socioeconomic status, and student race/ethnicity.
