About EdStats

EdStats (Education Statistics) was designed and developed by the World Bank’s Education Group of the Human Development Network (HDNED) and the Development Economics Data Group (DECDG) drawing on data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and other international agencies. Its purpose is to compile education data from a variety of national and international sources in order to provide information on pertinent educational topics.


In response to EdStats user’s feedback, the website has gone through a comprehensive update. The new 5.3 version presents a fresher layout and a user friendly design that make the website easier to navigate.


Please note that data from different sources may be inconsistent. If you have any comments on data and related issues, EdStats would be happy to coordinate your comments and work with our partner agencies to resolve problems. Please click here for the contact information.
