 UIS launches eAtlas for Education 2030 

The one-stop shop for education data


The UIS has launched the eAtlas for Education 2030, which brings together all available data to monitor the Sustainable Development Goal on education (SDG 4). This ground-breaking initiative covers a wide range of issues about access to education, the quality of the education on offer and the results for children and young people. Through a series of interactive maps, it presents the global and thematic indicators for each SDG 4 target as well as ‘placeholders’ for indicators not yet available.


Automatically updated with the latest data, the maps present key findings related to learning, equity and quality of education by, for example, illustrating basic proficiency levels in reading and mathematics, completion rates from primary to tertiary, the percentage of children out of school, the amount being spent on each pupil’s education, and the supply of qualified teachers. It also goes further to explore gender disparities, the relevance of education, the safety of the school environment, and the number of adults who are enrolled in primary education programmes. 


Explore SDG 4 Data


Data at your fingertips


The eAtlas is designed to be the one-stop shop for education data. With just a couple of clicks, anyone – an expert statistician or an ordinary member of the public – can explore the data on digital literacy in Turkey, for example, or school bullying in Namibia. Every map view can be customized and shared via social media as well as downloaded and embedded within websites, blogs, presentations and reports. Through this highly visual approach, countries can easily explore the data and use the indicators to develop their own monitoring frameworks.


This is a ‘work in progress’, with new data being added as they become available. For example, five of the SDG 4 targets, involve the measurement of learning, for which there is, as yet, no agreed framework for the production of internationally comparable indicators. In response, the UIS is working with a range of partners to produce the data through initiatives such as the Global Alliance to Monitor Learning and the Technical Cooperation Group on SDG 4 – Education 2030 Indicators. 


The eAtlas directly reflects the UIS mandate to produce the internationally comparable data needed to monitor progress and ultimately achieve SDG 4.
