New Educational Attainment Data added to EdStats

The Attainment Query has been updated with the most recent UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) dataset on educational attainment for the population aged 25 years and older in around 150 countries. The data provide insights into mean years of schooling from 1970 to 2014 and the highest/minimum completed level of education from 1995 to 2015. To access the data, search for "UIS" under in the Series tab.
