The archives listed below contain the latest official data disseminated by the UNESCO Institute of Statistics (UIS). To find out when the datasets will be updated please visit http://uis.unesco.org.

Intended Audience
This archive is a result of a rigorous data production activity that ensures a high level of data quality. In order to expose the dataset to the largest audience possible and reduce its complexity, the UIS has normalized and compiled it using comma-separated values (CSV) format. This allows both beginners and seasoned data professionals to understand and work with it.

NOTE: Due to their large size, these files are meant to be programmatically processed. As such, you may not be able to use some consumer tools such as Microsoft Excel to access all the data without first modifying the source files. We have provided tutorials on how this data may be accessed with Python here and R here.
