Number of reported indiscriminate (non-targeted) attacks on schools, universities and other educational facilities

This indicator is the sum of reported incidents of non targeted attacks on schools, universities and other educational facilities. Non-targeted attacks are not directed at schools but have an impact upon them, either because they may lead to the closing of educational facilities or result in damages to their buildings.  For example, threats that lead to the closing of schools because of security issues related to armed conflict are also considered non targeted attacks and are, therefore, included.

They might take various forms: airstrikes, ground strikes, bombing/shelling, explosions, looting, burning vandalism, etc. 

Percentage of private enrolment

Private enrolment refers to pupils or students enrolled at a given level of education in institutions that are not operated by a public authority but controlled and managed, whether for profit or not, by a private body, such as a non-governmental organisation, religious body, special interest group, foundation or business enterprise.

Gross enrolment ratio (GER) (%)

GER is the ratio of total enrolment, regardless of age, to the population of the age group that corresponds to the same level of education. GER can exceed 100% due to the inclusion of over-aged and under-aged students, because of early or late school entrance, and grade repetition. For the tertiary level, the population used is the 5-year age group starting from the official secondary school graduation age (Source: UIS, Education Indicators - Technical Guidelines: p.9)

Percentage of schools with potable water

Percentage of schools with potable water is the share of schools at a given level of education with a drinking water facility or water delivery point that is designed to protect water from external contamination, particularly of fecal origin. Examples of potable drinking water facilities include: pipe-borne water, protected wells, boreholes, protected spring water and rainwater
