|Title:||JRC STATISTICAL AUDIT ON THE GLOBAL TALENT COMPETITIVENESS INDEX 2015-16|

|Abstract:||The GTCI attempts to summarise complex and versatile concepts related to human capital and talent competitiveness at the national scale in 109 countries worldwide. In so doing, it raises some conceptual and practical challenges. The JRC analysis suggests that the conceptualised multilevel structure of the GTCI 2015 is statistically coherent and balanced (i.e., not dominated by any pillar or sub-pillar; all indicators contribute to the variation of the respective Input/Output sub-indices and to the overall GTCI). Furthermore, the analysis has offered statistical justification for the use of equal weights and arithmetic averaging at the various levels of aggregation, showing that the GTCI is statistically reliable in its current form as the simple average of the six pillars. The auditing conducted herein has shown the potential of the Global Talent Competitiveness Index 2015, upon some further refinements, in reliably identifying weaknesses and best practices and ultimately monitoring national performance in human capital and competitiveness issues around the world.|
