Source: 2011 PISA scores by percentiles of Economic, Social, and Cultural Status (ESCS), a measure constructed to be comparable across Western nations based on "the International Socio-Economic Index of Occupational Status (ISEI); the highest level of education of the student’s parents, converted into years of schooling; the PISA index of family wealth; the PISA index of home educational resources; and the PISA index of possessions related to “classical” culture in the family home."
