Education

Quick Fact
In South Africa, education is governed by two national departments, namely the department of Basic Education (DBE), which is responsible for primary and secondary schools, and the department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), which is responsible for tertiary education and vocational training. Government regularly collects and releases education statistics to monitor and manage the education system. The statistics are primarily published by the Department of Basic Education, the Department of Higher Education and Statistics South Africa.? Statistics South Africa undertakes periodically national censuses and household surveys to collect information on demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the population as well as living arrangements and access to amenities by households.
Education and Society?
Education information published by Statistics South Africa is mostly based on the annual General Household Surveys; the inter-censal Community Surveys and the decennial Censuses are also used to generate education statistics. These include data on education which consist of attendance of educational institutions, educational attainment, fields of study as well as literacy levels among the population. Household surveys data are important as they enable analysis of education information by households and individual population characteristics. Such data complement school and institution based data produced by the Departments of Basic and Higher Education as they provide household members background information that may influence schooling decisions. Questions used in these surveys are kept consistent to allow the use of multiple censuses and surveys for comparison over time. Thematic reports produced from these surveys contain information on a variety of subjects in the field of education statistics. For example, the education series iii report which draws from these sources, includes information on educational attainment, literacy, average years of education received by school phases, enrolments, mode of transport used to get to educational institutions and intergenerational educational mobility. Factors that influence educational outcomes, education characteristics of the youth in comparison to their parents, and the relationship between educational outcomes of parents and their children are also provided. The average change in the prices of tuition fees for both secondary and higher education are covered by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) release.
