Centre for Statistics and Monitoring of Education
Director of the Centre
The Centre promotes the modernization of educational statistics and creates statistical resources which comply with the modern demands and international standards.
In 2000 the staff of the Centre developed the concept of modernizing educational statistics in the Russian Federation, and on this basis, formed a complex system of statistical indicators for education development in the RF, as well as developing a unified system of statistical monitoring of the work of educational institutions of all levels and types.
Experts of the Centre have participated in the development of a new area of Russian educational statistics — the statistics of education financing. An important area of the Centre’s statistical studies is the development of a ranking methodology by education development indicators.
Since 2002, the Centre has been coordinating "Monitoring of education markets and organisations" (MEMO). This project has been implemented at the HSE under the instructions of the Russian Ministry of Education and Science and covers a broad spectrum of participants.
The Centre supports a number of areas of sociological research in educational themes, such as: society’s attitude to education development problems, society’s satisfaction with the level and quality of educational services, evaluation of the population’s level of knowledge, participation of the population in continuing education.
The staff of the Centre consists of economists, statisticians and sociologists who have some experience of working in central and regional bodies of Rosstat (Federal Statistics Service) as well as cooperating with international organisations such as UNESCO, OECD and Eurostat.
An important part of the Centre’s work is the distribution of statistical information on education. Professional and expert communities widely use this information and the statistical publications regularly prepared by the Centre.
The Centre issues the following publications:
- Education in the Russian Federation statistical yearbook – a joint publication by the RF Ministry of Education and Science, Rosstat and the HSE.
- Indicators of Education statistical brochure which contains key education indicators compatible with educational standards. Since 2008 it has been published both in Russian and English.
- In 2010 the first brochure of a new series entitled Education in Figures was published which contained the key indicators of education development.
- Monitoring of Education Economics information bulletin — a series of periodical publications which provides general results and analytical summaries concerning the economics of education.
