On September 12, 2017, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released the publication ‘Education at a Glance 2017’.

The most important message with regard to Germany is that the share of recent tertiary graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields is 37%, and hence the highest of all OECD and partner countries, reflecting Germany’s strong technological focus.

OECD Indicators is the authoritative source for information on the state of education around the world providing key information on the output of educational institutions; the impact of learning across countries; the financial and human resources invested in education; access, participation and progression in education; and the learning environment and organisation of schools.

The 2017 edition presents a new focus on fields of study, investigating both trends in enrolment at upper secondary and tertiary level, student mobility, and labour market outcomes of the qualifications obtained in these fields. The publication also introduces for the first time a full chapter dedicated to the Sustainable Development Goals, providing an assessment of where OECD and partner countries stand on their way to meeting the SDG targets. Finally, two new indicators are developed and analysed in the context of participation and progress in education: an indicator on the completion rate of upper secondary students and an indicator on admission processes to higher education.

The report covers all 35 OECD countries and a number of partner countries (Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Lithuania, the Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia and South Africa). For more information please see the following link
