1All the countries shown in this figure are members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
NOTE: Includes government and private expenditures on all levels of education institutions. Government expenditures include both amounts spent directly by governments to hire education personnel and to procure other resources, and amounts provided by governments to public or private institutions. Government subsidies used by households for payments to education institutions are counted as government expenditures, not private expenditures. Government expenditures may also include expenditures on education institutions from international sources. Graphic display was generated using unrounded data. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
