Statistics in the field of education includes two areas – Education statistics and School statistics.

The Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic conducts sample surveys within the framework of education statistics, which are part of the European Statistical System. The legal basis of these surveys are the respective framework regulations of the European Parliament and the Council (EU) and subsequent implementing regulations of the European Commission.

Adult Education Survey provides information every six years on opportunities and experiences with adult education, on willingness, needs and obstacles to participation in this education. The key information is the participation of the population in formal and non-formal education as well as in in-formal learning during the last 12 months, broken down by age, gender, education and economic status. The survey is carried out by employees of the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic in approximately 5 000 households in Slovakia. Data collection is ensured by the interviewer in the form of an interview with a selected member of the household aged 18-69 and recording his answers in the questionnaire. The obtained data are grossed up to the total population in the Slovak Republic, adjusted for persons living in collective households (institutions).
