Human capital inequality data

Castello and Domenech (2002) construct a cross-country panel dataset of the distribution of educational attainment in the population, rather than the average years of schooling as in the Barro-Lee dataset.

The dataset is downloadable at Domenech's website.

Used by Castello-Climent and Domenech (2008) and Amparo Castelló-Climent (2008) "On the distribution of education and democracy" Journal of Development Economics, 87(2): 179-190.
