  • Data was taken from the CIA World Factbook and UNESCO statistics through UNdata.
  • Generally, in developed countries, women are most likely to spend more years in education than men. A notable exception is South Korea. The opposite is generally true for low-income countries.

  • France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Ireland and the Netherlands are major high-income countries where women do not typically receive more years of education than men.
