EdStats: Education Statistics

The World Bank Education

New Data on Gender, Income, and Rural/Urban Disparities added to EdStats

The Education Equality Query and Country Profiles have been updated with new education data from 32 recent Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS). With the addition of these surveys, EdStats now holds data from over 200 DHS that can present a portrait of gender, income and rural/urban inequalities in education access, progression, and attainment in around 80 countries.

Early Grade Reading Indicators added to EdStats Learning Outcome Query

EdStats has added five additional Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) indicators to the Learning Outcome Query. The indicators provide information on the building blocks of literacy acquisition such as students' ability to identify letter names, letter sounds, and the initial sound of a spoken word. The indicators supplement EdStats' current EGRA indicators on listening comprehension, words read per minute, oral reading fluency, and reading comprehension. EdStats now holds EGRA data for ten indicators, nine countries, and eleven languages, and plans to expand the dataset as additional data become available.
