Search by Country

Use the search by country option to find all of the EPDC data related to a particular country. Each country page displays all of EPDC's available resources on a selected country in a snapshot, including a summary of education in that country, example graphs showing key indicators, and links to all of the relevant profiles and research.

Search by Topic

Use the search by topic option to find all of the EPDC data related to a particular topic in education. Each page has a description of the topic and example graphs of key indicators.


Search by School Level

Use the search by school level option to find all of the EPDC data related to a particular school level. This data is organized into primary, secondary, post-secondary and by grades data. The 'by grades' option allows for search results to be refined to a single grade level, such as Grade 3. The 'other' option includes data on technical, vocational, nursing, and Islamic education among others.
