NATIONAL EDUCATION CENSUS 2005 Pakistan

Introduction

The National Education Census (NEC) 2005 has been conducted for the first time in the history of Pakistan. Reliable, accurate and comprehensive database is a prerequisite for any type of planning. Obviously planning and management of education system at all levels also requires information based on the comprehensive database including all categories of educational institutions in the country. Thus the need for National Education Census was being felt from all quarters for more informed and visionary policy formulation, decision-making, efficiency, effective reforms and quality of education.
In the past incomplete database was being used which had partial information of private sector schools, colleges and universities, technical and vocational education, professional institutions, deeni madaris etc. There was no data to visualizing the total expenditure on education, as expenditure by the private sector was not available. Planning of education was affected because of the incomplete data, which is clear from the existing gap between planning and implementation. Even at international level our ranking among the countries of the world remained low due non-availability of complete data which sometime caused embarrassment for the authorities.
Keeping in view the multiple concerns the Ministry of Education decided to conduct National Education Census (NEC) 2005 in collaboration with Academy of Educational Planning and Management (AEPAM) and Federal Bureau of Statistics (FBS), Statistics Division. The census aimed at complete enumeration of all categories of educational institutions in the country and establishment of comprehensive National Data Bank on Education.

The National Education Census (NEC) covered 245,682 institutions which includes public and private schools, colleges and universities, professional institutions, vocational and technical institutions, mosque schools, deeni Madaris, non-formal basic education centres, distance education centres, special education institutions etc. The census has primarily focused to gather data on the level, type and management of the institution, enrolment, teaching staff and their qualifications and training, non-teaching staff, medium of instruction, building and other facilities available and expenditure. The data on different aspects of institutions have been collected for the year 2004-05.
