With the very real chance of Scotland voting to leave the United Kingdom and go it alone later this month, how will an independent Scotland measure up? Home to only 7% of UK businesses it will be small – but will it be nimble? Its recent economic growth has not been extraordinary.

Population with Higher Education: Which Countries Have the Highest Rates?

Population with higher education

The world’s population with higher education has grown from 12.1% of the global adult population aged 15+ in 2008 to 13.3% in 2013. This is translating into higher incomes and a swell in numbers of the top earning socio economic groups. Canada had the world’s highest percentage of its population aged 15+ with higher education at 36.0% of its total population in 2013 due to government prioritisation of higher education. At the other end of the scale is Kenya, with just 2.4% in the same year.

How would an independent Scotland look, in comparison with a UK without Scotland? In terms of total consumer market size, the UK without Scotland would not see a drop in its position in global rankings. An independent Scotland would become the world’s 45th largest consumer market, finding itself placed in-between Finland and Peru. In terms of average household spend, the average household in the UK without Scotland would be higher than its Scottish equivalent in all categories with the exception of alcoholic drinks and tobacco, and clothing and footwear.

Is Global Grocery Retailing Getting More Concentrated?

Global Grogery Retailing

While the move towards more concentration in grocery retailing is apparent in most markets, either developed or emerging countries, this trend cannot be seen at a global level. This reflects that the largest retailers, notably the top three global players, remain highly dependent on mature, developed markets, so that their sales growth lags behind that of local players in emerging markets. The saturation of large store formats may undermine expansion prospects for some of the largest players.

How Education Standards in the BRICs Compare

Emi_educationBRIC-v1.1-01

Education standards are an excellent predictor of future consumption habits in a country. When education standards rise, this means a higher proportion of the population will work in skilled jobs with higher salaries. Among the BRIC markets, Russia has the highest proportion of its population aged 15+ with higher education, at 15.2% in 2013. India has the lowest adult literacy rates, at just 53.1% for females aged 15+ and 75.8% for men in 2013 due to widespread illiteracy in rural areas.
