Welcome to UIS.Stat

The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) is the official and trusted source of internationally-comparable data on education, science, culture and communication. As the official statistical agency of UNESCO, the UIS produces a wide range of state-of-the-art databases to fuel the policies and investments needed to transform lives and propel the world towards its development goals. The UIS provides free access to data for all UNESCO countries and regional groupings from 1970 to the most recent year available. The UIS encourages developers and researchers to build websites and applications that make rich use of UIS dissemination data. In addition to a powerful standards-based API, the UIS supports a data browser and a bulk data download service (BDDS).

Data Browser

A comprehensive and easy-to-use browser for viewing and downloading the most popular UIS data and indicators in tables. Data are organized in a tree view by topic and presented using a simple three-dimensional format (indicator, country or region, year). Users can build their own customized tables and export data in Excel format.

Background Information on Education Statistics in the UIS Database

This document serves as a reader’s guide to help data users understand and interpret the education data disseminated by the UIS. It includes information about symbols used, official data sources used by the UIS to collect education data as well as for population estimates and economic statistics. It also provides technical notes on education data and indicators. Country specific notes can be found in this document as well.

Bulk Data Download Service (BDDS)

The BDDS allows users access to the entire UIS dataset. The files downloaded through this service are presented in csv format (comma separated values), which are designed to give power data users the ability to access all of the UIS data they need in a format that can easily be leveraged by most of today’s high capacity analytical tools. In addition, the structure and format of these files should remain stable, allowing for the development of custom programmatic access solutions that can continue to meet requirements for the foreseeable future.
