eAtlas of Gender Equality in Education - 2012
With over 120 maps, charts and tables, the UNESCO World Atlas of Gender Equality in Education enables readers to visualize the educational pathways of girls and boys in terms of access, participation and progression from pre-primary to tertiary education. The Atlas features a wide range of sex-disaggregated data and gender indicators from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics. It also illustrates the extent to which gender disparities in education have changed since 1970 and are shaped by factors such as national wealth, geographic location, investment in education and fields of study.

UNHCR Statistical Online Population Database
The database currently contains data about UNHCR's populations of concern from the year 2000 up to 2012 and you can use it to investigate different aspects of these populations: their general composition by location of residence or origin, their status (refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced persons, etc.), their evolution over time, and so on.
Overview page each row of data presents the information about UNHCR's populations of concern for a given year and country of residence and/or origin. Figures for the different types of population are presented across the page.
Time Series page presents the same data as the Overview page, but arranges the figures as a yearly time series across the page.
Demographics page presents information about persons of concern broken down by sex and age, as well as by location within the country of residence (where such information is available). Note that data broken down in this way is not always available, so it may not be possible to reconcile the figures on this page with those on the Overview and Time Series pages.
Asylum Seekers page presents information about asylum applications in a given year and the progress of asylum seekers through the refugee status determination process.
Quick Queries page contains a selection of links to data that are frequently requested, bypassing the need to enter specific query criteria. Note that these queries will open in a new page in your browser.
