UNESCO has released the Global Education Digest 2005, with data for the 2002/03 school year. In the coming weeks I will present the latest data on primary and secondary school enrollment, on the gender disparity in primary and secondary school, and on other aspects of education, including repetition rates and school life expectancy.
I will also begin to present data from household surveys. Two important sources of data on education are the Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) of UNICEF and the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) that were initiated by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
