The European Agency Statistics on Inclusive Education (EASIE) data tables and country background information for the 2020/2021 school year are now available from 23 Agency member countries.
The EASIE activity informs country-level work on learners’ rights issues connected to equity and participation in inclusive education. The data is in line with strategic objectives set by international organisations active in the field of education, like the Council of the European Union and UNESCO.
EASIE data is presented in two tables. Table 1 provides data on access and placement of all children/learners in inclusive educational settings or otherwise. Table 2 focuses on children/learners with an official decision of special educational needs. Descriptive, qualitative country background information is also available to give a clear context to the data provided. To view a country’s data, select the country name from the list on the Data tables and background information page.
Individual country reports (indicator tables) are also available via the ‘View Country Report’ button on each country’s page. These reports include an agreed set of indicators on enrolment and identification rates, which are calculated from the data tables.
The Guide to the EASIE data tables and country background information contains a list of definitions used during the EASIE data collection and provides an overview of the data collection process. It describes the specific data required, the aims of the data and what the data is used for.
Data from several more countries is currently being approved and will be available soon. The Cross-Country Report for the 2019/2020 school year dataset has been published. The report for the new dataset will be available later this year.
