School Enrolment Rebounded in 2014
The Annual Compendium of Statistics 2014 was released today by the Economics and Statistics Office.
The Compendium seeks to assist policy-making and business decision-making by presenting the most comprehensive collection of statistics from various public and private sector data sources. The statistics pertain to population, demographics, social and living conditions; the economy, finance and development; the environment; and information and communication technology.
One of the highlights in the 2014 edition of the Compendium is the increase in total enrolment from reception to secondary education for the school-year 2014-2015. This reached 7,806, higher by 1.1 percent (or 84 students) as compared to the previous school-year when total enrolment in the Islands declined. The increase in enrolment is due to private schools which altogether registered a growth of 6.3 percent (or 181 students), while that of government schools fell by 2.0 percent (or 97 students). The enrolment trend coincided with the overall increase in population growth in 2014.
