The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) presented a formal revision to their 1976 edition of the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED 97). The ISCED has been designed as an instrument suitable for assembling, compiling and presenting educational statistics both within countries and internationally. In addition to the United Nations, the ISCED classification system is supported by other international agencies, such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Statistical Office of the European Communities (EUROSTAT).
