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. This eAtlas also features more specific information on teachers collected through a series of initiatives, including:
  • New indicators on school conditions and teaching resources in sub-Saharan Africa collected through a regional survey;
  • Projections on the global demand for primary teachers updated on a yearly basis; and
  • Data on the working conditions and characteristics of teachers in 60 selected countries.


Through the user-friendly interface, the UNESCO eAtlas of Teachers can be used to:
  • Compare and view two maps simultaneously;
  • Animate maps to show change over time;
  • View all data in ranking tables and charts alongside maps; and
  • Export maps and data for use in presentations and more.
