TZ shines on human capital index front
- Hits: 323
DAILY NEWS Reporter, 23/10/2018
TANZANIA has outshone some of its East African Community (EAC) neighbours in the Human Capital Index released in Indonesia last week.
The country posted a 0.40 score in the World Bank’s first edition index which ranks 157 global countries based on their education and health outcomes and the impact they are having on productivity.
The East African nation comes second after Kenya which registered a score of 0.52 in the survey which also aggregates data from four indicators, including under fives mortality rates, expected learning adjusted years of school, adult survival rates, and stunting rates.
According to the index, 95 out of 100 children born in Tanzania now survive to see their fifth birthday. Similarly, a Tanzanian child who starts school at age four can expect to complete 7.8 years of school by his or her 18th birthday.
