Introduction

This handbook updates the general descriptions for the indicators of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program (PCEIP) as new sets of tables are released. It is a reference document that gives readers a broad understanding of each indicator, rather than the very specific methodological descriptions that would be necessary to reproduce the indicator using the raw data.

The PCEIP tables highlight the most recent data available for five broad indicator sets:

  1. A portrait of the school-age population
  2. Financing education systems
  3. Elementary and secondary education
  4. Postsecondary education
  5. Transitions and outcomes.

The following information forms the main body of the Handbook, and is presented for each of the PCEIP indicators:

An appendix that presents the structure of education and training in Canada concludes the Handbook.
