Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

As the statistical branch of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), the Institute for Statistics (UIS) produces cross-nationally comparable statistics on education, science and technology, culture, and communication for more than 200 countries and territories.


The UNESCO Education Statistics dataset includes over 1600 indicators for 290+ countries/territories from 1970 onwards. From pre-primary school enrolment to tertiary graduation rates, it covers all education levels and addresses key policy issues such as gender parity, teachers and education financing.
