África: Educational Attainment Data Release 

The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) has released new national data on educational attainment and mean years of schooling for the population aged 25 years and older.


Attainment data are now available for 147 countries, 9 more than in the previous release. The data are available in the form of 2 indicators: the highest completed level of education and the minimum completed level of education.


The new educational attainment data follow the levels of education defined in the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) 2011. Compared to ISCED 1997, ISCED 2011 makes it possible to present more disaggregated data for persons who have completed tertiary education.


In addition, this is the first UIS release to present time series with attainment data. Data on the highest and minimum completed levels of education are available for the period of 1995 to 2015, allowing analysis of national trends in attainment over time.


The UIS is also releasing an expanded dataset with estimates of mean years of schooling. This indicator measures the average number of years of education completed by a country’s adult population (25 years and older), excluding years spent repeating grades. Mean years of schooling are available for 149 countries, covering the period 1970 to 2014.


To access the new data go to the UIS Data Centre and click on Education – Educational attainment. The tables with attainment data can also be accessed directly from the links below:


• Population by highest completed level of education
• Population by minimum completed level of education (cumulative)
• Mean years of schooling

UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS): Measuring inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all

 Education 2030

Measuring inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all 

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will remain just that – a set of goals – without accurate data that countries can use to monitor progress and develop evidence-based policies. In response, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) is leading the development and production of the frameworks and indicators needed to monitor SDG 4 to ensure equitable and inclusive quality education and lifelong learning for all by 2030.

To guide this work, the UIS is chairing the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) on post-2015 indicators, which includes technical experts from UNESCO, the EFA Global Monitoring Report, UNICEF, the World Bank and the OECD, as well as representatives of different Member States and civil society organizations. The TAG has released a new proposal presenting a framework for thematic monitoring of SDG 4 (including 43 indicators) based on extensive consultations with Member States, experts and the public. These indicators are included in the Education 2030 Framework for Action, which was adopted by Member States at UNESCO’s General Conference in November 2015. 


At the same time, the UIS is working with partners to develop the initiatives needed to produce a range of new indicators especially in priority areas, such as learning, equity and education finance.
