One of our goals on this website is to provide useful data for Catholic schools and universities. This includes data on Catholic education, but also other types of data that are relevant to Catholic educators. We strive to make data accessible and are planning to release a data visualization tool. 
Data on Catholic education are available from various sources, including the annual statistical yearbook of the Church. This website provides those data including country profiles for Catholic education.
We also provide links to other datasets that are relevant to Catholic schools, including data from the UNESCO Institute of Statistics and the World Bank, as well as data from international student assessments and school health surveys, among others. 
Data can take many forms. We value both quantitative and qualitative data. If you own a dataset that has gone through an appropriate Institutional Review Board (IRB) protocol and would like us to make it available through his website, contact us.  We will review the dataset and post it on this website if it meets our criteria.
