Abstract

We decompose global inequality in educational achievement into within- and betweencountry components. We find that the former is significantly larger. This is different than results for international income inequality, but similar to results for international health inequality.

Keywords: Education, inequality, decomposition, global, TIMSS

JEL Classification: I20, D39
