From grades 4 to 12, Census at school gives students hands-on experience with surveys and data analysis. The E-STAT database allows educational users to choose, graph, map and download a wealth of data.

Education Indicators in Canada: An International Perspective, 2010 (September 7, 2010)

This report, the second in an annual series, places certain aspects of the educational systems of Canada’s provinces and territories into an international context. Ten international indicators are presented in this edition, capturing information on educational attainment and graduation, labour market outcomes by educational attainment, spending on education, international students, and participation in adult learning. The report’s content reflects the methodology used by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for presenting a picture of education across its 31 member countries, including Canada. The latest available data for Canada and the provinces and territories are compared against the most recent OECD averages.
