Research Strategy

Data for the Canadian annual education budget was extrapolated from the Fraser Institute, an independent non-partisan research and educational organization based in Canada, and Statistics Canada, the national statistical office. Both the 2019 and 2020 edition of the Fraser Institute report were utilized to find the per-student spending for each year. This spending was then multiplied by the number of students found in the Statistics Canada report for the selected years. This calculation is believed to have provided the most accurate data for the Canadian education budgets.

We searched for data for the education budget and student numbers for 2017 to 2019. We searched through statistics reports and government databases, among other sources, but no up-to-date or relevant information could be found for this data.

Research Strategy

We started the research by looking at the Russian government websites and these included the websites of the ministries of finance and education. We got information on the amount dedicated to education out of the overall federal budget on the ministry of finance website. However, it was only information on projects to be executed that were available on the ministry of education website.

We then expanded the search by looking at databases provided by international agencies such as World Bank, UNESCO, and OECD. Through this strategy, we got information on the number of primary and secondary school students from 2011-2017. We then had to sum the values up to get the combined number of primary and secondary school students. The calculation done is shown below.

For the missing years, our next strategy was to search news articles and these include The Moscow Times, 4imn and TASS news since they could have provided information on the number of students enrolled throughout the country. It was only information on the literacy rate that was available.
We further searched educational reports by agencies which included World Educational Services (WES) and Education Europe, since their reports could have contained data on the number of enrolled students in Russia. It was information on higher education that was available.

Total number of students (primary and secondary)= Number of primary school students + Number of secondary school students
For 2017, total number of students (primary and secondary)= 26,573,633+9,905,067= 16,478,700
For 2016, total number of students (primary and secondary)= 6,198,783+9,566,901= 15,765,684
For 2015, total number of students (primary and secondary)= 5,982,572+9,384,610= 15,367,182
For 2014, total number of students (primary and secondary)= 5,725,528+9,061,324= 14,786,852
For 2013, total number of students (primary and secondary)= 5,651,730+9,092,027= 14,743,757
For 2012, total number of students (primary and secondary)= 5,514,819+9,165,252= 14,680,071
For 2011, total number of students (primary and secondary)= 5,318,323+9,206,247= 14,524,570

Education Spend and Numbers of Students 12

The attached spreadsheet shows the total number of students (in primary and secondary schools) from 2010 to 2019 as well as the 2019 government education annual budget in South Korea. In addition, we have outlined the government education expenditure for 2011 to 2017 as helpful findings to the research.

Research Strategy

Through our thorough research, we were able to successfully determine the number of students (primary and secondary) for all the requested years by scouring the UNESCO database. However, the data on the number of primary students per year and secondary students per year was separate therefore we summed them together (number of primary students per year+ number of secondary students per year) to obtain the total number of students for each particular year.
In our search for South Korea's government annual education budgets, we could only find data on the government annual education budget for 2019. We, therefore, applied some additional research strategies to further our research to find the requested data on South Korea's annual education budget from 2010 to 2018.
We started by searching for government websites, reports, and publications that outlined South Korea's education and particularly funding. We were able to find the annual budget for 2019 and the education spending for 2017 as a percentage of total government expenditures. Since the latter did not provide data on the annual budget, we identified it as a helpful finding.
Next, we searched news sites and publications in South Korea for reports and news releases on education budgets and funding. We were able to find information on the 2019 annual education budget, which complemented our previous finding on the 2019 budget.
Finally, we scoured through public databases such as the Worldbank database, UNESCO database, and Country Economy database. We were able to locate data on South Korean government expenditure on education in US dollars and as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Since our findings stated the actual government expenditure or spending and not the budget as requested, we outlined these data points as helpful findings to the research. Moreover, we were not able to locate any data for 2011 and 2018 that directly related to the research request.
