#### Formula:

EI = ((MYS / 15) + (EYS / 18)) /2
**Where,**
EI = Education Index
MYS = Mean Years of Schooling
EYS = Excepted Years of Schooling

#### Example

**If the MYS and EYS values are 10 and 15 years, then **

EI = ((10 / 15) + (15 / 18)) /2

= (0.66666666666 + 0.83333333333) / 2

= (1.4999999999) / 2

= 0.7499999999

= 0.75.
