The graph illustrates the standard number of pupils of two different age groups in 4 different countries, as well as the global average.

The most striking point is that in all countries, as well as the global average, the number of students in a class of 9 year olds is always higher than class sizes for those aged 13, with the exception of Japan, where there are approximately 35 13 year olds per class.

Japan and Hong Kong both have the highest number of students in the each class, with figures never falling below approximately 31 students per class.

In contrast, Russia has the fewest students, with slightly over ten per class. The United States is notable for being almost identical to the global average, with roughly 23 students in the younger class and approximately 18 in the older class.


Overall, there are significant variances between countries, but not between different ages within a country.
