# Barro-Lee Schooling Data¶

The standard dataset for working with cross-country schooling data.

Covers educational attainment by [year, country, age group, sex].

How is this constructed?

• mainly from household surveys
• since there are not many surveys for most countries, there is a lot of interpolation

## Getting the Data¶

Make the Stata file into a Matlab dataset using Stat/Transfer.
Write a function var_load_yc_bl2013 that extracts one variable for a given set of years and countries.
