EdStats, developed by the World Bank, collects data on education from national reports, UNESCO (UN Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development to provide educational statistics for over 200 countries and regions.
It also includes World Bank public expenditure data from 2002 onwards as well as projections of educational attainment and enrolment rates until 2050.
Data can be custom searched but is also available in pre-defined reports by country or topic, for example on the Millennium Development Goals or private education expenditure.
The IDS, a statistics service from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), is an online database of the volume, origin and types of aid and resource flows to over 150 developing countries.
The data are collected from official statistical reports submitted to the OECD by members of its Development Assistance Committee and include figures on official development assistance, other official flows and private funding.
A Creditor Reporting System provides further data on where aid goes, what purposes it serves and what policies it aims to implement.
