Unesco UIS Statistics on SDGs

The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) is the official and trusted source of internationally-comparable data on education, science, culture and communication. As the official statistical agency of UNESCO, the UIS produces a wide range of state-of-the-art databases to fuel the policies and investments needed to transform lives and propel the world towards its development goals.

The UIS provides free access to data for all UNESCO countries and regional groupings from 1970 to the most recent year available and encourages developers and researchers to build websites and applications that make rich use of UIS dissemination data. 

Data are organized in a tree view by topic and presented using a simple three-dimensional format (indicator, country or region, year). Users can build their own customized tables and export data in Excel format.

For more information as well as instructions on how to access the data: http://data.uis.unesco.org/?mc_cid=2c0dff12d8&mc_eid=b1a8d3d607

Education data for SDG 4 are also available on our SDG 4 Data Explorer.
