Acedo, Clementina; Uemura, Mitsue
This set of education indicators for the World Bank's East Asia and Pacific Region is designed to provide key policy-oriented data for World Bank staff and clients. The framework is divided into six main chapters: (1) the demographic, social and economic context of education; (2) financial and human resources invested in education; (3) access to education, participation, progression and graduation rates; (4) the learning environment and the organization of schools; (5) student achievement; and (6) social and labor market outcomes of education. The chapters include relevant comparative indicators for developing countries. The education indicators draw on data available from electronic and published data bases within the World Bank, including EdStats, World Development Indicators, Statistical Information Management and Analysis (SIMA), special studies, and Economic Sector Work. They also draw from Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) sources, particularly the World Education Indicators sample, United Nations Agencies, especially UNESCO and the United Nations Development Program, United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Global Education Database, International Labor Organization, International Monetary Fund, Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), and client country information systems. The following countries are included: Australia, Cambodia, China, Fiji, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Kiribati, Korea DPR, Republic of Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Mongolia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Singapore, Solomon Islands, Thailand, Tonga, Vanuatu, and Vietnam. Depending on availability, data were collected with a periodicity of five years, starting in 1980 through 1995 and including the last available year. Indicators include economically active population by gender and level of educational attainment; educational attainment by age, gender, and rural or urban areas; employment ratios of youth by level of educational attainment; net enrollment by income quintile; and fertility rates by level of education.
