Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Education indicators in focus: How is the global talent pool changing?. Author, Paris, 2012. Pages: 4.
In this brief report compiled and published at the end of May, OECD projects that there will be more than 200 million 25 to 34 year-olds with higher education degrees across all OECD and G20 countries by the year 2020. More importantly, 40% of them are expected to come from either China or India. In comparison, current leaders - the US and the EU - should account for slightly more than a quarter of young people with tertiary degrees in OECD and G20 countries in 2020. Between 2000 and 2010, the non-OECD G20 countries, which include Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Saudi Arabia and South Africa, have witnessed an unprecedented increase of 65% in numbers of young graduates. OECD expects this trend to continue, and already in 2010, China accounted for the most graduates with 18% out of the global pool.OECD
