An Education index is a component of the Human
Development Index published every year by the United
Nations Development Programme.
Since 2010, the education index has been measured by combining average adult
years of schooling with expected years of schooling for students under the age
of 25, each receiving 50% weighting.
Education is a major component of well-being and
is used in the measure of economic
development and quality
of life, which is a key factor determining whether a country is a developed, developing,
or underdeveloped country.
