Higher Education In India: A Data Compendium attempts to put together the latest available information on higher education in India at a single location. While higher education is an extremely dynamic segment in India’s education sector, yet a host of issues related to a lack of a good and comprehensive monitoring system have prevented the regular publishing of data on this sector. Data does exist, but it tends to be infrequently published, dated, not comparable and many times of poor quality. Laveesh Bhandari, with Sumita Kale and Chandra Shekhar Mehra present here the most appropriate data that is credible, from government or associated data sources. This compendium of data simplifies for the reader, the gamut of issues that must be kept in mind, before interpreting the data on higher education. This book will be of immense use and interest to educationists, policy-makers and student of varied disciplines including economics and demographics.
