Monitoring the teacher target

Monitoring the teacher target

4.cThe UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) is the official source of cross-nationally comparable data on education, including teachers. It produces international monitoring indicators based on its annual education survey and on other data sources that guarantee international comparability for more than 200 countries and territories.

In addition to collecting data, the UIS works with partners to develop new indicators, statistical approaches and monitoring tools to better assess progress across the targets related to the Sustainable Development Goal on education (SDG 4).

For more information on monitoring SDG 4 target 4.c on increasing the supply of qualified teachers got to the UIS dedicated page.



UNESCO eAtlas of Teachers

The UNESCO eAtlas of Teachers lets you visualize the gaps in the supply and demand for teachers at national and global levels. Through maps, charts and ranking tables, you can explore the data to answer key questions such as: precisely how many new teachers are needed to respond to the rising demand for primary education? How do working conditions for teachers compare across countries and regions? And to what extent are women represented in the teaching workforce?

This eAtlas features a wide range of indicators produced by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS). The UIS compiles education data for more than 200 countries and territories through its annual survey and partnerships with organizations such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Eurostat.
