The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) publishes new data for SDG 4th

Today, the UIS is publishing new or updated administrative data for 34 countries for six global SDG 4 indicators, 15 thematic indicators and 14 ‘other relevant policy indicators’ (ORPI). New household survey data available today include updates for four global SDG 4 indicators, three thematic indicators, and three ORPI, across multiple years.

This Data Refresh includes new disaggregations by age for Indicator 4.3.1, defined as the participation rate of youth and adults in formal and non-formal education and training in the previous 12 months, by sex. This indicator is calculated from household survey data compiled by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). While the UIS database already has this indicator for the 15-64 age group, the disaggregation now includes specific age ranges of: 15-24 years, 25-54 years, and 55-64 years.

The time series for rural-urban disaggregated data for Indicator 4.4.3, the youth/adult educational attainment rate, have been extended from 2000 to 2010. This release builds on work from last year in which urban-rural disaggregation for 2010 to 2021 were added to the database.

Changes in reporting: Following the discussion at the 9th annual meeting in November 2022, the Technical Cooperation Group on SDG 4 indicators (TCG) decided to discontinue the publication of Indicators 4.6.3 (Participation rate of illiterate youth/adults in literacy programmes) and 4.7.6 (Extent to which national education policies and education sector plans recognize a breadth of skills that needs to be enhanced in national education systems). These two indicators were consequently not included in this Data Refresh.
