Description
  • Abstract

    Focus of this study is the data of the educational system, collected in different European countries. Mainly there is information about the pupils’ number in primary schools, secondary schools and in universities collected. There is no information about the vocational education and adult education, because the differences between these systems are too strong. In order to get comparable data, the pupils’ registration quota (relative school-/high-school attendance) were collected (this means the proportion of pupils or students of the corresponding population’s age cohort). For each country the information are presented in three different tables: - Information about the primary school-system, - Information about the secondary school-system, - Information about the higher education (universities). Furthermore, time series about the population of the countries as well as about the population’s alphabetisation quota in Prussia/the German Empire, France, England and Wales and Russia are available. Topics: Time Series available via HISTAT In the ZA-Online-Database HISTAT are tables available containing the following information for each country: Primary-Schools: Number of pupils in all schools, abs. Number of pupils in public schools, abs. Number of pupils in private schools in % of all pupils in primary schools. Number of pupils in % of the population’s 5-14 age group in primary schools. Number of pupils in % of the population’s 5-14 age group in public primary schools. Number of teachers in all primary schools. Number of teachers in public primary schools. Pupils per teacher in all primary schools, in public schools and in private schools. Primary Teacher Schools: Number of students and number of female students. Secondary Schools: Number of pupils in post-primary schools, abs. Number of pupils in lower secondary schools, abs. Number of pupils in % of the population’s 10-14 age group in lower secondary schools. Number of pupils in all schools of general higher secondary education, abs. Number of pupils in public schools of general higher secondary education, abs. Number of pupils in private schools of general higher secondary education in % of all schools. Number of pupils in % of the population’s 10-19 age group in all schools of general higher secondary education. Number of pupils in % of the population’s 10-19 age group in public schools of general higher secondary education. Number of female pupils in all schools of general higher secondary education. Percentage of female pupils in all schools of general higher secondary education. Number of pupils in Technical / Commercial higher secondary schools. Number of pupils in all higher secondary schools, abs. Number of pupils in all higher secondary schools in % of the population’s 10-19 age group. Universities, higher education: Number of students in technological institutes of higher education, abs. Number of students in commercial institutes of higher education, abs. Number of students in other institutes of higher education, abs. Number of students in universities, abs. Number of students in universities in % of the population’s 20-24 age group. Number of female students in % of all students. Students by faculty in percent of all students: theology, law medicine, philosophy, mathematics/science, economics/social sciences, technology. Total number of students in higher education, abs. Total number of students in higher education in % of the population’s 20-24 age group. Additional: Estimated population (including the USA and Russia). Concerning Prussia/German Empire, France, England and Wales, Russia: Alphabetisation-quota.
