The UIS has launched its 2023 Survey of Formal Education for the reference year ending in 2022 to ensure the timely collection of data needed to monitor progress towards the SDG4 goals. The questionnaires and the related materials are available on the UIS website at:

As the custodian agency for SDG 4 data, the UIS collects education data and develops indicators to enable Member States to meet national commitments to the Agenda 2030 Framework. To reduce the reporting burden on Member States, only the essential data points needed to produce core indicators are collected in the survey.

In September 2023, the UIS will be releasing data collected and indicators from this survey through the Institute’s data portal (UIS.stat), the SDG 4 Data Explorer, and visualization tools. The data will also be used in many global indices, reports and databases.

To access the available resources on the development of SDG 4 indicators and the related international cooperation, please visit the website dedicated to the Technical Cooperation Group (TCG) to find the Methodological Toolkit.
