Kendall, W. L.
This document attempts to state in simple terms what is necessary as a minimum to ensure the adequate provision of educational statistics in developing countries. It has been developed for the use of Ministries of Education and other interested departments in developing countries to help them develop the basic set of statistics necessary for national reporting and planning. The publication begins with a general discussion of the educational statistician and educational statistics. It then examines the problem of collecting educational statistics both within and outside of the school system. Chapters dealing with the analysis and reporting of educational statistics discuss records and reference tables, analytical tables, diagrams and graphs, averages and comparisons, enrollment and entry rates, wastage, forecasting, and publishing. The document concludes with suggestions for organizing a statistical department and suggestions for further research. A selected bibliography is included. (Author/DN)
