Percentage of students achieving level 3 or better on the PISA reading test. Achievement levels run from 1 to 6. Tasks at this level [level 3] require the reader to locate, and in some cases recognise the relationship between, several pieces of information that must meet multiple conditions. Interpretative tasks at this level require the reader to integrate several parts of a text in order to identify a main idea, understand a relationship or construe the meaning of a word or phrase. They need to take into account many features in comparing, contrasting, or categorising.

For the Quality of Life rights (economic and social rights), HRMI measures countries against 2 different benchmarks. You can change benchmarks by clicking the 'Switch view' button
Income adjusted: How well is the country doing compared to what we know is possible at that country's income level? Every country can achieve 100% against this benchmark if they use their available resources effectively, so any lower score tells us that improvement is needed, and is possible.
Global best: How well is the country doing compared to the rest of the world, including the wealthiest countries?
For the Quality of Life rights (economic and social rights) we have two assessment standards - two collections of indicators we use to measure the rights.
Low and middle income: Uses statistical indicators that are available for most countries in the world, particularly low and middle income countries.
High income: Uses some indicators that are primarily available for high income countries, and better reflect the human rights challenges of high income countries.
