Welcome to the European Agency Statistics on Inclusive Education (EASIE) web area! 

The Agency’s data collection activity (EASIE) provides clearly focused data that informs country policy priorities on inclusive education, the European Commission’s strategic objectives on inclusive education and the implementation of Article 24 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006).

Data is collected by officially nominated data experts in participating Agency member countries.

The EASIE Data Tables provide numeric data relating to:

  • children/learners in recognised forms of education; 
  • children/learners educated in inclusive settings; 
  • the placement of children/learners with recognised special educational needs (SEN) in inclusive settings or otherwise. 

To provide a clear context to the Data Tables, all countries provide descriptive background information. This information describes:

  • the forms of recognised education in the country;
  • what an ‘inclusive setting’ means in the country;
  • what an ‘official decision of SEN’ means in the country;
  • what ‘out-of-education’ means in the country;
  • other specific issues relating to the data for their country.

In addition to the Data Tables, from 2020 onwards Indicator Tables provide information on the agreed set of indicators for inclusive education for each country.

Since 2020, the EASIE data collection has taken place annually. Before 2020, it took place every two years. The Data tables section presents all available EASIE data since the 2012/2013 school year. The default view is the most recent dataset. 

Cross-Country Reports present the analyses of the full datasets collected via the EASIE activities. Other EASIE outputs include Methodology Reports, Key Messages and materials on Out-of-School Learners.

The full EASIE datasets are available on request from the Agency Secretariat (secretariat@european-agency.org) as an unformatted Excel workbook.
