Global Education Digest 2011: Comparing Education Statistics Across the World, Focus on Secondary Education


The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) annually publishes the Global Education Digest (GED) in order to
present the latest education statistics worldwide. Each year it highlights a special theme, which is analysed
based on a subset of relevant indicators drawn from the statistical tables of the report. This year’s edition of the
Digest looks at key issues and indicators for secondary education. As the demand for secondary education
continues to increase worldwide, there is also interest in the use of benchmarks and comparisons to improve the
functioning and capacities of education systems at this level.
