Statistical offices and education statistics in European countries

The denominations of some countries deviate in different languages from each other, so also between English and German. In order to always get always the same alphabetical order e.g. in printed documents, among other things the European Union agreed on the fact that the alphabetical sequence should follow the order according the denomination in the national language. We follow this suggestion according to that alphabetical list.
