1. These averages are from Education at a Glance 2012: OECD Indicators,
Table B.1.2, Annual expenditure per student by educational institutions on core services, ancillary services and R&D (2009), which presents the most recent available data for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's member countries for which data were available or could be estimated. Please see the OECD Web site.
2. In columns 1 to 3, the OECD averages include postsecondary non-tertiary education. The average for total expenditures in the OECD includes a different number of countries than the averages for educational core services and ancillary services separately. Hence the total does not add up to the sum of these two components.
3. Due to early cutoff dates for submission of data to the OECD, the figures for Canada presented in this report are not the same as those published in the OECD's Education at a Glance 2012: OECD Indicators. The figures presented in this report represent the most recent available.
