Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS)

The UIS, a branch of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), collects and circulates policy-relevant science statistics from more than 200 UN-member countries and territories. It aims to develop a database of indicators including gender disparities in various science disciplines. The website provides access to country profiles and data that can be searched by theme such as education, literacy, science and technology. Current surveys, key documents, factsheets on policy issues, questionnaires, reports and other publications are made available.
