  • Barro-Lee Educational Attainment Dataset
    Contains enrollments at all education levels (primary, secondary, and tertiary) for a sample of 89 countries from 1820 to 2010 at 5-year intervals. Contains estimated educational attainment for the total, female and male populations from 1870 to 2010. The estimates are available in 5-year intervals for 89 countries. Contains projections of educational attainment for the total, female and male populations from 2015 to 2040. The estimates are available in 5-year intervals for 146 countries. Can also be found in an easy to use interface from the World Bank which also contains the supplement from IIASA/VID which provides projections to 2050.

  • Education Statistics (World Bank)
    Worldwide data on education from national statistical reports, statistical annexes of new publications, and other data sources. Includes public expenditure data.

  • Generations and Gender Surveys
    Longitudinal Survey of 18-79 year olds in 19 countries that aims to improve our understanding of the various factors which affect the relationships between parents and children (generations) and between partners (gender). A broad array of topics including fertility, partnership, the transition to adulthood, economic activity, care duties and attitudes are covered by the survey. Includes a separate contextual database that is organized around central topics closely linked to the program. The variables describe variations of context over time and among regions that are believed to have an impact on the behaviors and relations that constitute the key dependent variables of the survey: fertility, partnership, transition to adulthood, economic activity as well as the intergenerational and gender relations between people expressed e.g. in care relations or the organization of paid and unpaid work. The data include statistical norms, legal norms and regulations, measures of welfare state policies and institutions as well as general economic and cultural indicators. Registration is required.

  • International Adult Literacy Survey 1994-1998, 2012 (IALS)
    7-country initiative first conducted in the fall of 1994. Its goal: to create comparable literacy profiles across national, linguistic and cultural boundaries. Also offers the world's only source of comparative data on participation in adult education and training. Since then, a 2nd and a 3rd round of data collection were conducted in an additional 16 countries in 1996 and in 1998. In total, includes literacy data pertaining to 23 countries or regions around the world. For 2012 data is available for Canada only. Also known as the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies - PIAAC.

  • International Data Explorer
    Provides summary results to 3 international studies: (1) The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA IDE) provides results for the United States and 56 other jurisdictions from the administration of PISA in 2006. Results include mathematics, science and reading literacy results for 15-year-old students; responses to a student questionnaire about their background, attitudes, and school experiences; and responses to a school questionnaire about school characteristics and resources. (2) The Progess in International Literacy Study (PIRLS IDE) provides results for the United States and 44 other jurisdictions from the administration of PIRLS in 2006. Results include reading achievement of fourth-grade students; responses to a student questionnaire about their background, attitudes, and school experiences; responses to a teacher questionnaire about instructional practices, resources, and background and training; and responses to a school questionnaire about school characteristics and resources. (3) The Trends in International Mathematics Study (TIMSS IDE) provides results for the United States and 57 other jurisdictions from the administration of TIMSS in 2007. Results include mathematics and science achievement of 4th and 8th-grade students; responses to a student questionnaire about their background, attitudes, and school experiences; responses to a teacher questionnaire about instructional practices, resources, and background and training; and responses to a school questionnaire about school characteristics and resources.
