The most educated countries. This rating is based on data taken from the project’s official website. Human Development Reports under the auspices of the UN. The main purpose of its implementation is to determine the level of social development of a state.
Earlier, I already cited statistics from another study, which in turn determines the level of contribution of a state to the development of science on a global scale.
Within the framework of this project, the Education Level Index in the World Countries (Education Index) was created. This indicator is primarily based on the Human Development Index (Human Development Index) calculated as the literacy index of the population older than 18 years and the proportion of pupils receiving education.
The Index itself is measured by the following criteria:
1) Adult Literacy Index (Has a weight of about 70% of 100%)
2) The index of the total share of students receiving primary, secondary and higher education (It has a weight of about 30% of 100%)
According to the first indicator, the data are taken from the results of surveys of the adult population of a country and are adjusted with the results obtained by calculations carried out by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics. For some developed countries, where the question of literacy in questionnaires is no longer raised, a literacy rate of 99% is set.
According to the second indicator, data on the number of students at all levels of educational institutions are taken by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics on the basis of reports provided by relevant government agencies of the world.
The two indicated indicators of the level of education are summarized in the final Index, which is set as a value from 0 to 1, where 0 is the minimum value and 1 is the maximum value.
It is generally accepted that developed countries should have a minimum rate of 0.8, although many of them have a score of 0.9 or higher.
When determining the place in the world ranking, all countries are distributed on the basis of the Education Level Index, where the first place corresponds to the highest value of this indicator and the last to the lowest.
In total, 189 countries from around the world took part in this rating. The most educated country is in 1st place and the most uneducated in 189th.
Let’s look at these countries.
