En este trabajo se construyen series anuales del nivel educativo de la población para España y sus regiones durante el periodo 1960-2011 utilizando la información que proporcionan los censos de población. Estas series actualizan y mejoran las elaboradas en de la Fuente y Doménech (2006), lo que permite comparar con datos de 2011 la situación de las regiones españolas con la de otros países de la OCDE. Trabajando con información desagregada por tramos de edad encontramos que, de mantenerse los patrones actuales de escolarización y en ausencia de grandes flujos migratorios, las perspectivas de una mayor convergencia educativa entre regiones son escasas.Abstract: In this paper we compute annual series of the educational level of the Spanish population and regions from 1960 to 2011 using the information provided by the population censuses. This new data set updates and improves previous estimates by de la Fuente and Domenech (2006), also allowing the comparison in 2011 with other OECD countries. Working with the information disaggregated by ages we find that, based on current patterns of schooling and in the absence of large migration flows, the prospects for further educational convergence between regions are scarce.
