Human Capital Data Input Sources Tool

The Human Capital study synthesized a large number of input sources to expected human capital for 195 countries and territories from 1990–2016.

The Human Capital Data Input Sources Tool allows you to explore input sources and retrieve relevant metadata relative to three of the four human capital components: functional health status, based on the prevalence of seven health conditions (infectious diseases, anemia, vision loss, hearing loss, intellectual disability, childhood stunting, and childhood wasting); educational attainment, measured as the average years of schooling; and learning, measured as the average standardized test scores for reading, science and math of school-aged children.

Use the selection boxes below to see these input sources by human capital component and geography. After you have made your selection, you can view and access GHDx catalog entries that describe input sources used by the Human Capital study.

Download these input sources as a CSV file to see more information about how they were used in the analysis for the study. This CSV file contains relevant metadata about the input sources as suggested in the Guidelines for Accurate and Transparent Health Estimates Reporting (GATHER), a statement that promotes best practices in reporting health estimates.
