OECD Handbook for Internationally Comparative Education Statistics

Concepts, Standards, Definitions and Classifications

This handbook provides answers to questions such as "What is a teacher?", "What do we mean by public education expenditure?" as well as questions concerning the use of the indicators "How should I interpret expenditure per student?" "What is it measuring?".  In so doing, the handbook aims to facilitate a greater understanding of the OECD statistics and indicators produced and so allow for their more effective use in policy analysis.  Equally, it provides a ready reference of international standards and conventions for others to follow in the collection and assimilation of educational data.  This publication describes the methodology used in the International Survey of Upper Secondary Schools(ISUSS) and in related OECD publications and allows researchers to understand and replicate its analyses.

Hide / Show Abstract

During the 1980s, the increasing demand for information on education and the need for improved knowledge of the functioning of education systems raised many questions not only for data collection but also for the organisation, reporting and interpretation of the data. These questions led authorities in the Member countries of the OECD to consider new ways of comparing their education systems. Agreement was reached on the feasibility and utility of developing an international set of indicators that would present, in statistical form, key features of the education system of Member countries....
