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.
