International Standard Classification of Education, ISCED 1997
The present classification (48 p.), now known as ISCED 1997, was approved by the UNESCO
General Conference at its 29th session in November 1997. It was prepared by a Task Force
established by the Director-General to that effect and is the result of extensive consultations of
worldwide representation. ISCED 1997 covers primarily two cross-classification variables:
levels and fields of education.
UNESCO-`s data-collection programme will be adjusted to these new standards and Member States are invited to apply them in the reporting of education statistics so as to increase their international comparability. To this end, an operational manual, aimed at giving guidance on the interpretation and practical application of ISCED 1997, will be prepared in close collaboration with national experts.
During the 1998/99 biennium work on additional aspects such as types of education and education providers will be undertaken and incorporated in the present classification.
