Education

Education in the everyday sense is the transfer of knowledge, in the course of which a greater amount of theoretical and practical knowledge is taught to a person or a group within a usually regular, institutionalised framework. Education statistics includes measuring the educational level and qualifications of the population, assessing the performance of initial education (until 2011 public education) and tertiary educational institutions, publishing data on human and financial resources of education, and monitoring the lifelong learning process of the individual (workplace training and adult education).
