Education statistics

Review paper by Australia

In-depth review of education statistics

The Bureau reviewed education statistics in November 2011, and noted that guidelines are needed for the measurement of e-learning, which is a relevant topic in several countries. Good practices should also be shared on the integration of different data sources.

Outcome of the review

Several countries and international organizations expressed interest in participating in a possible Task Force on measuring e-learning and expressed readiness to share good practices in integrating data on education, but did not volunteer to lead the work for the moment. The start of these activities was put on hold until a later date.
