What are the effects of education expenditure on Urban and Rural Populations?

Project Summary

How does government expenditure on education affect urban and rural populations? The data to answer the question was sourced from the World Bank Universal Indicator dataset, and then the relevant data frames were combined to analyze the relationships between government expenditure on urban populations vs. rural populations. The graphs below show that there is very little connection between population growth and how much a country’s government spends on its education department. In fact, every 440 billion dollars spent on education correlates to about .1% urban population growth while every 350 billion dollars of educational expenditure correlates to about .08% rural population growth.
