New education data for the school year ending in 2011 are now available in the UIS Data Centre. The UIS works closely with Member States to improve the timeliness and coverage of international education statistics. As a result of sustained efforts, results from the 2011 education survey are available for more than 80 countries. In addition, the UIS has released data for 2012 for about 7 countries.
The release includes 2011 data on enrolment, teachers and related indicators for pre-primary, primary, secondary and post-secondary non-tertiary education. At the tertiary level, 2011 data are available for 54 countries. In addition, the UIS Data Centre contains indicators on education finance for 25 countries for the same year.
In terms of key indicators used to monitor progress towards Education for All, 2011 data are available for all but one country in Central Asia and for more than two-thirds of countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Users will also find the latest results from the regional data collection on schooling conditions in Africa.
To consult the 2011 data, readers can build their own “custom tables” in the UIS Data Centre by taking the following steps:
- select all countries
- select data items
- select 2011 and generate table.
The UIS will be releasing data for the 2011 school year for more countries in January via the Data Centre and the reference data set will be published in May.
