PISA: Truancy rate in the UK compared to selected OECD countries 2015

This statistic shows the truancy rate as reported by 15 year olds in the United Kingdom and selected OECD countries in 2015. The highest rate was found in Montenegro, at 60 percent. The United Kingdom was above the OECD average, whilst Japan had the lowest reported rate. Rather than being collected from schools, the data here represents the percentage of 15 year olds who personally said in the PISA that they had skipped classes or days of school. The countries shown here are a selection of those tested and do not represent the full survey.
