we have to prepare the next generation with the capacity for lifelong learning.

Talent, not capital, will be the key factor linking innovation, competitiveness and growth in the 21st century, and we must each understand better the global talent value chain.

Better data and metrics are critical to this understanding. The Human Capital Index measures countries’ ability to maximize and leverage their human capital endowment. The index assesses Learning and Employment outcomes across 5 distinct age groups, on a scale from 0 (worst) to 100 (best), and assesses 124 economies.

The index is focused on learning and employment outcomes and in demographics and it covers 46 indicators.

Finland: Rank 1; Score 85.78
Spain: Rank 41; Score 73.30

The world economic forum new report provides comprehensive information on the talent base in each country, including information on education levels of the employed, unemployed and the inactive members of the population as well as the specific qualifications of the latest entrants to the workforce.
