3.2. Frequency of data collection

UOE questionnaire is filled on yearly basis.

3.3. Data collection

Data used to fill in the UOE questionnaire are collected through cenzus surveys.

3.4. Data validation

Data reported in UOE questionnaire are validated for each national statistical report or first release.

3.5. Data compilation

Operations performed on data to derive new information according to a given set of rules.

Weighting methods
Weighted figures for differing reference periods Weighted figures for differing theoretical ages Conversion factors from part-time to full-time equivalent (FTE) data
    For ISCED 1 - 0,25  part-time student equals to one full-time student
    For ISCED 2 and 3 -  0,5 part-time students equals to one full-time
    For ISCED 5, 6, 7 -  0, 75 part-time studendts equals to one full time.

 

 

Estimations were used in tables REGIO and PERS.

PERS - in the sheet PERS3-AGE  estimation was made for ISCED 1 and ISCED 2 breakdown for teachers by age, for previously all teachers were included in ISCED 2, and ISCED 1 had only totals. Share of teachers by each age category was calculated and the ratio was applied to ISECD 1 total.

Another estimation was made for ISCED 3, considering general and vocational breakdown using the same principle.

REGIO - REGIO2 - AGE breakdown was estimated as well.  The share of "jadranska Hrvatka" and share of "kontinentalna hrvatska" were calculated from each sex total from sheet REGIO1-LEVEL and then ratio was applied to the total by age in REGIO2-AGE.  To be as real as possible different ratio was applied for different age groups:

- age 3, ISCED 01 ratio

- age 4 to 6, ISCED 02 ratio

- age 7 to 10, ISCED 1 ratio

- age 10 - 14 ISCED 2 ratio

- age 15 to 18 ISCED 3 ratio

- age 19+ average tertiary education ratio

3.6. Adjustment

Made only for FIN- STUD data to adjust enrl data for financial year.
