UNESCO-UIS. Global Education Digest 2009. Comparing Education Statistics Across the World. UNESCO Institute for Statistics, Montréal, Canada, 2009. ISBN: 978-92-9189-070-5. Pages: 264.

The 2009 Global Education Digest (GED) presents the latest education statistics from primary to tertiary education levels for more than 200 countries. Data are provided for the school year ending in 2007 or the latest year available, as well as for 2008 for a small number of countries. The wide range of education indicators presented in the report helps assess progress towards Education for All and the Millennium Development Goals.

Beyond the global set of education indicators, the GED continues to report more in-depth education data for a group of 62 countries, including those that are members of the World Education Indicators (WEI) programme, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Eurostat. This data set offers cross-national comparisons of more detailed information on tertiary educational programmes, as well as on the sources and flows of tertiary education funding.

The report can be downloaded from the UNESCO-UIS website.
