Education data in Nigerian national household survey data: Review of survey reports and evidence from microdata

Abstract:

This report examines published results, metadata, and microdatasets from recent surveys and administrative data collections covering education indicators in Nigeria. It aims to determine: whether published estimates of key indicators are comparable; it is possible to improve the comparability of indicators from microdata analysis, and whether they show any statistically significant changes over time, especially at state level; and, whether the analysis suggests that some surveys are more reliable than others.
