Education: Statistics and data

What is data? What is statistics?

"Data is made up of raw numbers, typically with many variables...Statistics are the interpretation of raw data, often to show relationships among variables." This quote is taken from the webpage, What is the difference between data and statistics?, by Lenoir-Rhyne University Libraries.

We provide a reference collection of statistics and data publications on Level 5, in front of the Information Point: this collection contains journals and books covering a wide range of social science topics, including education, whereas the resources listed here on this webpage have been selected by me to provide you with some starting-points from which to identify education-related data and statistics.
