Dashboards

The dashboard has been further divided into three parts – i.e. Elementary, Secondary and Demographic Dashboards. The Elementary and Secondary Dashboards are based on U-DISE data. Data and indicators in the Demographic Dashboard is based on Census, 2011 data, which are required to understand the characteristics of the administrative unit. Read more

The Elementary and Secondary Dashboards have four thematic areas – i.e. school profile and facilities, teachers, enrolment and outcomes. The KPIs at elementary and secondary level dashboards have been estimated using the U-DISE database. The data and KPIs presented in the DVA cover the period starting from 2011-12 to 2016-17 for elementary level and 2012-13 to 2016-17 for secondary level.

The following table provides information on thematic indicators by sub-groups, stages of school education and school management, which have been covered in the DVA:

Thematic Area Number of Indicators Availability of data by subgroups
Elementary Secondary Management Location Gender Social Groups Administrative area
Schools 40 37 Rural and Urban - - National level to Block level
Teachers 16 11 Rural and Urban Male and Female SC, ST, OBC, General and Others National level to Block level
Enrolment 25 20 Rural and Urban Boys and Girls SC, ST, OBC, General and Muslim National level to Block level
Outcome 16 10 - - Boys and Girls SC, ST, OBC, General and Muslim National level to Block level
Total 97 78
Note:* Includes all Management, Government, Government Aided, Private Unaided and Unrecognized institutions.

Besides, 25 indicators have been provided in the Demographic and Socio-Economic Dashboard. These indicators are available by gender, social groups and spatial and administrative units stating from national to district level. These indicators are available based on latest Census, 2011 data, National Family Health Survey - 4 (NFHS-4) conducted in 2015-16 and Economic Survey, 2017-18.

The Elementary and Secondary Dashboards have the following graphics:

  • 9 to 12 indicators from each thematic area has been selected and they are shown in the tiles for most recent available data for all management (total) for selected administrative areas.
  • After this visualization, information can be explored based on the selected indicator, the level of disaggregation and the time-period. Information related to a particular indicator is depicted in four to five graphics, which are as follows:
    • First graphic is a trend analysis of the selected indicators for all management in all themes.
    • Second graphic is a trend analysis of selected indicators of school and school facilities and teachers by management, and enrolment and schooling outcomes by social category.
    • Third graphic is a trend analysis of selected indicators in school profile and school facilities and teacher by location, and enrolment and schooling outcomes by gender.
    • Fourth graphic is comparison of selected indicators by management and location for a given time period.
    • Fifth graphic is information on selected indicators by several levels of disaggregation over a selected time period for one administrative sub-unit of an administrative unit in heat maps and bar graphs.
  • One of the most important features of the Dashboard is comparison of selected indicators for a given level of disaggregation by administrative area for over two time periods. By default, indicators have been presented in the DVA by State/UT and the unit can be changed to district for selected state. The second level of disaggregated graphic presentation of indicators is at the district level for the entire country in heat maps for two time-periods.

One of the unique feature of the DVA is that data of a given graphic can be viewed in a table format and can also be downloaded in other formats for presentation and further use.

Mobile App

There are two Mobile Apps for data visualisation, which provide information on elementary and secondary education separately. These apps can be downloaded from Google Play Store and IOS Play Store. Read more

The mobile application for elementary level provides information on 97 KPIs and the mobile application for secondary level on 78 KPIs with similar levels of disaggregation as provided in the Dashboards. After the selection of a given indicator and a sub-group, the user can visualize information in charts and heat maps as per his/her choice and easily share through email or social media to any other user. The user needs to download the indicators to the mobile phone once every year to use the same till the indicators are updated for the next year.

What information is available and its Meta data?

The list of indicators with their disaggregation levels included in the Data Visualization App can be accessed here. Meta data for each indicator can also be accessed here.

What to consider while using data visualization?

  • Data presented or used for calculating indicators in the data visualization are essentially based on data provided by States and UTs through annual census of schools with 30th September as the reference date.
  • Information of any state or district may not be comparable over the time-period if the administrative unit has been bifurcated, which may also affect the values of some of the outcome indicators.
  • When comparing indicators for different administrative units or sub-groups, users should consider the different attributes of each administrative unit or sub-group. Each administrative unit or sub-group has different population size, number of schools and other characteristics that may affect values of indicators.
  • Similarly, comparison of any indicator for any sub-group is very useful when its unit is ratio or percentage, then it will give user to compare the status of sub-groups and if the unit of measurement is number, then the magnitude of various sub-groups can be assessed.
  • In some cases, data are not presented due to data inconsistency and shown by a given a sign of ‘-’ .
  • Data provided in the DVA may not match with data in other publications, if the definition and the methodology of calculation of the indicators are different from meta data for the same.
  • Andhra Pradesh was bifurcated in 2014 into Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Separate data for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have been provided from 2014-15. However, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have been shown separately in the map even before 2014-15 due to some technical issues, but data has been shown for undivided Andhra Pradesh.
  • Telangana state reorganized districts and blocks (known as Mandal) in 2016 and increased number of districts from 10 to 31 and blocks from 459 to 584. State also changed district and block level U-DISE code. Hence, district and block level data of Telangana state for the year 2016-17 are not provided in the portal because they are not comparable with previous years.
