A thorough search through Indian government websites such as the School Education & Literacy Statistics Division of the Ministry of Human Resource Development Department only produced data from 2016 and earlier. Also, after scouring through news reports, we did not find any relevant data. We also looked for interviews granted by government officials as well as industry experts hoping to find information on more recent data. But we couldn't find any relevant data.

The statistics on the number of students in primary and secondary schools in Italy were obtained from the World Bank and I.Stat. The most recent World Bank statistics was from 2017. We, therefore, provided the 2018 statistics from I.Stat. The school data was divided into primary school, lower secondary school, and upper secondary school. Hence, the use of three data points in the calculation of the number of students for 2018.

We proceeded to search for 2019 school data as well as by exploring news reports. We also looked for interviews granted by government officials as well as industry experts hoping to find more recent information. But we couldn't find any relevant data.
