    PISA results reveal what is possible in education by showing what students in the highest-performing and most
    rapidly improving education systems can do. The findings allow policy makers around the world to gauge the

    Foreign direct investment, net inflows (% of GDP)

    "Foreign direct investment are the net inflows of investment to acquire a lasting management interest (10 percent or more of voting stock) in an enterprise operating in an economy other than that of the investor. It is the sum of equity capital, reinvestment of earnings, other long-term capital, and short-term capital as shown in the balance of payments. This series shows net inflows (new investment inflows less disinvestment) in the reporting economy from foreign investors, and is divided by GDP."

    Labour productivity per hour worked (ESA95)

    "Labour productivity per hour worked is calculated as real output (deflated GDP measured in chain-linked volumes, reference year 2005) per unit of labour input (measured by the total number of hours worked). Measuring labour productivity per hour worked provides a better picture of productivity developments in the economy than labour productivity per person employed, as it eliminates differences in the full time/part time composition of the workforce across countries and years."

    Education expenditure as percentage of GNP, GDP and total government expenditure

    Current and capital expenditures on education by local, regional and national governments, including municipalities (household contributions are excluded), expressed as a percentage of gross national product OR as a percentage of gross domestic product OR as a percentage of total government expenditure on all sectors (including health, education, social services, etc.)
