Purpose of the Fact Booklet

he main reason why the MoES annually conducts a \r\nschool census is to update, analyse, and disseminate education sector \r\ninformation.\r\n

Being aware of the fact that information delayed is \r\nof very little value, and given the fact that a school census cycle \r\n(i.e. from the point school census data is collected to when it is fully\r\n processed and published) is a long one (approximately 10 months), with \r\neffect from 2000 MoES embarked on a dissemination strategy with three \r\nkey publications i.e. a fact file, fact booklet, and a full abstract.

\r\n

Fact-file

\r\n

The fact file is a two-page document summarising all \r\nthe key information and is published as soon as school census data entry\r\n is completed.

\r\n

Fact-booklet

\r\n

The fact booklet, small enough to fit in a pocket is \r\npublished next and provides an in-depth analysis (including trends). Its\r\n main purpose is to communicate and explain to stakeholders, \r\nrelationships and trend of events within the education sector.

\r\n

Full Abstract

\r\n

On the other hand, a full abstract is published last \r\nand it is designed to furnish stakeholders with data/information for own\r\n analysis.

\r\n

Trend Analysis Report

\r\n

Just like the fact booklet, the trend analysis report\r\n gives an in-depth analysis of data from all variables captured in the \r\nquestionnaire on a multi-year data approach Annual Report
This document is based on single year data cross-section covering all variables captured in the questionnaire.
