Profiles of national education systems
As from 1996, the IBE has undertaken the preparation of profiles of national education systems, using the information included in the reports on the development of education, supplemented with data from other sources. As the preliminary versions of the profiles are sent to the countries concerned in order for their content to be checked—or for additional information or clarifications, depending on the situation—this method emphasizes the co-operative way in which the profiles are established, the IBE assuming the major part of the work in an effort to provide a useful service.
The Internet version of World data on education continues to be updated regularly and now contains the profiles of 158 national education systems (either in English, French or Spanish, depending on the country).
