Indicators Part I: Population and School Enrollment
The indicators in this section provide data on the population and school enrollment
of the G-20 countries.
- Indicator 1 examines the school-age population as a percentage of the overall population.
It focuses on the age group most likely to be enrolled in education, as well as
on two subsets of that age group: those most likely to be enrolled in primary or
secondary education and those generally of higher education age.
- Indicators 2 and 3 describe the percentage of the population that is enrolled in
formal education in the G-20 countries and changes in enrollment over a 10-year
period. They focus on the four age groups that generally correspond to the ages
of those enrolled in preprimary education, primary and lower secondary education,
upper secondary education, and higher education.
- Indicator 4 describes the prevalence of international and foreign students studying
in higher education in the G-20 countries, including students in academic programs
below the doctoral level and at the doctoral level. It provides an indication of
the internationalization of higher education and student mobility.
The indicators in this section draw primarily on data from Education at
a Glance 2013: OECD Indicators (OECD 2013a).
