Format: Kindle Edition
Education has been described by many as the civil rights challenge of the century and at the heart of this struggle are the obstacles to educational access, completion, and achievement for some of the poorest children in the developing world. Evidence-based policy making can only be as good as the data it is based on and the World Bank's free ADePT data analysis software allows users to mine household surveys along with official sources for a clearer picture of which children are the most in need of targeted interventions. Porta and his co-authors offer a crash course in education analysis and a global overview of educational inequality today.

A must-read for those working to improve educational equality in the developing world.

I found this book extremely useful. It provides detail guidelines on how to use ADePT Edu. It also has super documentation on how to calculate education indicators using household level data. The last chapter provided a most read overview on education inequality around the world.

Used to think that getting information from household surveys was difficult and that you did not have the capacity to use it? Think again. This book and the tool that it presents will get you on your way to easy access to the millions of microdata on households throughout the world. This is a great book for everyone who wants to obtain statistical evidence from household survey on global development and (in-)equity. It is well-written and has a clear description of the new online tool, AdePT, that the World Bank has developed for accessing household data. As a bonus, it contains an overview of results from 200 surveys in the last section.
