This publication presents the global monitoring indicators used by countries and the international development community to monitor progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) on education. The indicators were produced by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), based on the latest available data.
The UIS is the official source of internationally-comparable education data and the custodian agency for SDG 4 data.
This mandate reflects the trust of the international community in UIS data and its proven track record in methodological work and standard-setting with national statistical offices, line ministries and technical partners in every region.
This publication presents a snapshot of the data used to monitor progress towards the global education goal and targets. It complements the UIS Quick Guide to Education Indicators for SDG 4, which provides more detailed information on the development, interpretation and use of the indicators.
