Basic data on the Austrian school system

Educational statistics represent an important basis for constant education system redevelopment, for quality assurance and for an evidence-based education policy.

The bilingual series of publications titled Zahlenspiegel/Statistical Guide are a useful source of information for anyone interested in the subject of education, as a result of the clear format for key statistical data from the school system, university colleges of teacher education and adult education.

The data for the Austrian school system’s Statistical Guide is always compiled by the BMBWF in the following year, in cooperation with Statistics Austria.

The 2018 Statistical Guide will be available provisionally by the end of 2019.
