World Bank Education Indicators
Household surveys can provide detailed information on gender, income and geographic inequalities in education access, progression, attainment, and expenditures. EdStats gives users access to household survey data through the following tools and resources:
- The Education Equality Query holds household survey data from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS). Indicator names beginning with the labels “DHS” and “MICS” were generated by EdStats using the ADePT Education tool. Indicator names beginning with “UIS” were generated by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) using their stated methodology. There may be differences in data from differing sources based on methodological differences.
- Education Equality Country Profiles are detailed Excel file reports for all available DHS, MICS, and Living Standards Measurement Studies (LSMS). They include a series of graphs and a wider variety of indicators than are currently available in the Education Equality Query.
- The Education Equality Dashboard is a data visualization tool that allows users to visualize disparities in attendance rates, completion rates, educational attainment, and out-of-school children.
- The ADePT Education tool allows users to derive education indicators from household survey data and create customized reports and graphs. The program contains built-in settings for DHS surveys, but also accepts other types of surveys, and determines automatically what tables can be built from the available data.
