About EMIS Data
This is the 2013/14 Education Statistics Annual Yearbook of Puntland in which annual
education data has been collected, processed and analyzed by the Ministry of Education
and higher education (MOEHE) for the third time.
The existing Annual School Census Surveys or questionnaires were modified for the year
2013/14 by the Puntland Ministry of Education and Higher Education, EMIS Unit and
sent to schools for data collection through the Regional Education Officers (REOs) and the
District Education Officers (DEOs). The completed survey data was collected from the
schools by the DEOs who checked the quality of the completed data and submitted to the
REOs and then the REOs to the EMIS unit of Ministry of Education and Higher
Education by checking the quality of the completed survey. The Ministry of Education and
Higher Education, EMIS unit encoded the raw data into the Pineapple software, verified it
and generated the required reports. It is only the formal primary, Integrated Quranic
Schools (IQS), Alternative Basic Education (ABE), Secondary education and Non Formal
Education data that have been captured by the pineapple software. The Technical and
Vocational Education and Training as well as Higher education data have been separately
processed on the MS Excel workbook.
The publication covers 2013/14 EMIS data and is a complete school census of Primary
education including Integrated Quranic Schools, Alternative Basic Education, Secondary
education, Non Formal Education, Technical and Vocational Education and Training as
well as Higher education. The main sources of data for the analysis and preparation of
educational indicators are the Annual School Census Surveys or questionnaires and also
the school age population of UNDP 2005 projected data. Our effort to get and use the
recent UNFPA Population Estimation Survey of Somalia (PESS) 2014 data for this
analysis was not successful as the Puntland Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation didn’t finalize it. UNDP 2005 projected data has been used as the sources of school age population data in Puntland for yearbooks 2011/12 and 2012/13 especially at the national level. No educational analysis has been done for those yearbooks at regional and district levels as the UNDP 2005 population data has no school age population at regional and district levels as well single age population data at national level.
The 2013/14 questionnaire has been well modified and shortened without limitation to the
very important data elements but the pineapple software has not been customized on time
accordingly. This has resulted in some data elements like classrooms, water supply,
sanitation, child protection, borders, feeding program, transport, etc. that have been
captured by the modified new survey couldn’t be encoded into the existing pineapple
software. But it has been tried to manually handle the classrooms, water supply and
sanitation data and analyze in this yearbook.
This publication contains analytical summaries of students, teachers, schools, learning
materials and facilities as well as examination results at grades 8 and 12. The data are
further disaggregated by region, gender, level of education, locality (urban vs. rural),
authority (MoEHE/Government vs. Non-Government).
Indicators and detailed analysis of indicators that are assumed to be most important for
the education system are presented. This analysis on students, teachers, schools, teaching
learning materials and facilities is used to produce conclusions and reports for
development partners, researchers, planners and decision makers.
