Based on high-quality scientific statistics and analyses, Statistics Austria draws a comprehensive and objective picture of Austrian society and economy. With the figures and data, Statistics Austria provides the basis for a fact-oriented public debate, empirical research and evidence-based decisions in society, politics and the economy, for example regarding the challenges in labour market, education and social and economic policy or sustainable financing of health, care and pensions against the background of demographic change.
Education in Figures 2020/21 provides a comprehensive overview of the educational situation in Austria. Selected educational indicators with short analytical background texts provide information on different educational areas such as school and university systems, adult education, educational pathways, the level of education and government spending on education.
The COVID-19 pandemic affected numerous areas of life in 2020/21 and thus left its traces on education. Characteristics of the educational situation in the nine federal states can be found in a separate chapter. In addition to this, a separate volume of tables offers extensive detailed data from the fields of school and university statistics and additional key data on the educational level of the resident population and on state education expenditure.
With this publication, Statistics Austria continues the series on education statistics.
