This report, published by Pearson and written by the Economist Intelligence Unit, seeks to distil some of the major lessons on the links between education and skill development, retention and use.

Underlying this report are the findings from the analysis of a large body of internationally comparable education data – The Learning Curve Data Bank (LCDB). First compiled in 2012, the LCDB has been updated in early 2014 to include, among other indicators, the latest test results from:

  • the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS)
  • the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS)
  • the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)
  • the initial output from the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), which looks at cognitive skill levels across the population.

The report was written by Dr Paul Kielstra and edited by Sara Mosavi of The Economist Intelligence Unit.
