Estimation of the numbers and rates of out-of-school children and adolescents using administrative and household survey data

About

This information paper characterises and explains variations between administrative and household survey estimates of the numbers and rates of out-of-school children (OOSC) at the primary and lower secondary levels, and suggests ways that data from the two sources might be harmonised. This document also discusses issues surrounding the measurement of exclusion from education for youth of upper secondary age, given this population’s competing rights of access to education and the right
to work.
