3.2. Frequency of data collection

For ISCED 0-3 data belong to a central register accessible to statistical use

For ISCED 4-8 data are transmitted once a year to the statistical unit

3.3. Data collection

data are collected through a questionnaire for ISCED 5-8 and private institutions 0-4

data are directly provided by the national register for ISCED 0-3

 

3.4. Data validation

Data are checked by automatic procedures

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 financial figures we estimate the number of students for financial years as Yfin=2/3 summer semester + 1/3 winter semester    2 students part-time = 1 full-time student

 

 

Estimation methods used in the UOE questionnaires
Type of data Detailed variables concerned ISCED level Reference year(s) Data source (internal to UOE or not) Data type (sample-based or not) Data source name in English Reason Description of the estimation method
PERS and FIN2 number of personnel and expenditure ISCED 5 all internal proportional     ISCED 5 programs are taught in secondary schools. they are special tertiary programs but we miss specific data on slitted personnel from ISCED 3. So we allocate the number of personnel and the expenditure proportionally according to the number of ISCED 5 students on total ISCED 5 + ISCED 3 
split into Academic and Vocational programs number of personnel and expenditure ISCED 6 and 7 all  internal proportional       At ISCED 6 and 7 a split into academic and vocational programs of expenditure and personnel is not possible. So we allocate the number of personnel and the expenditure proportionally according to the number of registered students into academic and vocational programs respectively at ISCED 6 and ISCED 7 level
