on the data

Download indicators here!

From this page you can download the indicators that were calculated from the available statistics. The reference year tells you when the activities began in a particular sector or country. For example, in the Higher Education sector, 1999 refers to the academic year that began in 1999, even though it may have continued into 2000. There is subsequently a time-lag during which finalised data are collected at national level and then reported internationally. This means that it is unavoidable for the latest indicators to be up to two or three years old.

Warning! Although every effort has been made to ensure that these data conform to the international standards, some exceptions do occur. For this reason, you can download more information about data sources and metadata. Please ensure that you refer to these notes and to the relevant flags when you are drawing conclusions based on these data.

  • All data are represented in Head Count (HC), unless otherwise stated
  • If data for the reference year (y) were not available, the year was selected following the rule: y+1 (i.e. the following year); y-1 (i.e. the preceding year); y+2; y-2 etc...
  • For countries with smaller populations, it is advisable to cross-refer to the raw statistics when interpreting these indicators.

Indicators are listed under four categories:
