Research & Statistics
Several national and international entities have set up education databases that are informed and constantly updated by research and evaluative studies. These entities collect, analyze, and report the data derived from their research findings on the condition of education in a particular nation or in nations worldwide. They also publish reports and specialized analyses of the meaning and implications of the findings using mostly statistical data, which can potentially be used by both national and local education agencies to evaluate their performances in respect to other nations and/or regions, learn from such comparisons, and ultimately use the understanding to mobilize efforts that address local educational needs.
This section is a gateway providing convenient access to current international and nation-specific research in the field of education. It also serves as a rich resource by providing a database for cross-nationally comparable statistical data and national data on education.
