Human Capital Report 2016
The World Economic Forum’s Human Capital Report ranks 130 countries on how well they are developing and deploying their talent. The index takes a life-course approach to human capital, evaluating the levels of education, skills and employment available to people in five distinct age groups, starting from under 15 years to over 65 years. The aim is to assess the outcome of past and present investments in human capital and offer insight into what a country’s talent base looks like today and how it is likely to evolve into the future. This year’s edition also explores new data sources to reveal fresh insights on skills diversity, the gig economy and talent mobility.
