A recent report looking at the impact of female leadership on corporate profits reveals just how far it lags other regions. For example, southeast Asia and eastern Europe are way ahead of North America when it comes to the share of female executives at local companies:

Teenagers in the Republic of Korea have the highest levels of literacy and numeracy of all OECD countries.
 
Where are numeracy rates higher: South Korea or the Netherlands?
These are the OECD countries with the best and worst literacy and numeracy rates.

2020 is shaping up to be a big year for us — the U.S. Census Bureau estimates “more than half of the nation’s children are expected to be part of a minority race or ethnic group,” LG plans to have tripled its solar panel production by then, there’ll be another iteration of the Olympic Games, and, oh yeah, robots will have apparently taken over some five million jobs.

IT SEEMS a country's spending reflects its national stereotypes, according to household expenditure data compiled by Eurostat: Russians splash 8% of their money on booze and cigarettes—far more than most rich countries—while fun-loving Australians spend a tenth of theirs on recreation, and bookish South Koreans splurge more than most on education. Some of the differences are accounted for by economics. Richer places like America and Australia, where household expenditure is around $30,000 per person, will tend to spend a smaller share of their costs on food than Mexico and Russia, where average spending is around $6,000. And politics plays a part too. Predominantly private health care in America eats up over a fifth of each household’s budget, whereas the European Union, where public health care is common, only spends 4% on it. In Russia, government-subsidised housing and heating make living cheaper, and this means money is left over for the finer things in life.

English is the world’s most widely spoken language – however, of a total 1.5bn speakers, only 375m are classified as native. Therefore, around the world over 1bn people speak English as a second language, but where is proficiency highest?

Airbnb is one of the few large global organisations without an HR department or even a CHRO. The decision to do away with HR coincided with the creation of a new function within the company called ‘employee experience’. So what is this and how does it differ from HR?

Airbnb has decided to do away with its HR function, replacing it with a new group focused entirely on ‘employee experience’

The full Ipsos “Index of Ignorance” is given in the table below. Mexico and India receive the dubious honour of being the most inaccurate in their perceptions on these issues, while South Koreans are the most accurate, followed by the Irish. There are some regional patterns in this table – for example Latin American countries tend to be more inaccurate, European and Americans more accurate – but this hides individual differences, and is not the whole story. New Zealand is the least accurate of the developed countries (in the top five most ignorant), while China is in the top 5 most accurate.

Ipsos MORI’s latest version of the Perils of Perception survey highlights how wrong the public across 33 countries are about some key issues and features of the population in their country.
