International Comparisons of Expenditures for Education. Indicator of the Month.

This document provides statistical information and a brief narrative analysis of public and private expenditures on education institutions for all of the G-7 countries. The G-7 countries are: Canada, France, Japan, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, and the United States. Statistical tables reveal the public and private expenditures on education institutions by level of education and country for 1993. A bar graph illustrates the public and private expenditures on education institutions in G-7 countries as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for 1993. In most G-7 countries, expenditures on higher education that came from public sources were more than twice the amount of those that came from private sources. In all of the G-7 countries, expenditures per student were larger for higher education than for primary/secondary education. The statistics include all institutions (public and private) with the exception of Germany and Italy, which include only public institutions, and the United Kingdom, which includes public and government-dependent private institutions.
