It is a commonly held belief that a country’s scholastic performance in STEM related subjects isindicative of a country’s future economic standing. This paper is intended to present aquantitative analysis on the subject matter, testing our hypothesis that there is indeed a positivecorrelation between academic performance in STEM subjects and a country’s economic strength.The PISA 2012 math scores and GDP per Capita were chosen as indicators of academicperformance and economic strength respectively. Other indicators such as Literacy Rate andEducational Spending indicators that are commonly associated with economic standing, arealso included in the analysis. The findings from our study confirm our hypothesis and suggestthat there is a positive correlation between academic performance in STEM subjects inparticular math and economic strength.
