This dataset presents internationally comparable data on expenditure per student on educational institutions at sub-national level. Expenditure per student on educational institutions at a particular level of education is calculated by dividing total expenditure on educational institutions at that level by the corresponding full-time equivalent enrolment. Expenditure per student are converted into equivalent USD by using national purchasing power parities (PPPs) for GDP. Further work on the cost of living at subnational level is required to fully adjust expenditure per student available in this dataset.

Both public and private institutions. The classification between public and private institution is made according to whether a public agency or a private entity has the ultimate control over the institution. For private institutions, the distinction between government-dependent and independent refers only to the degree of a private institution's dependence on funding from government sources: a government-dependent private institution receives 50% or more of its core funding from government agencies or one whose teaching personnel are paid by government agency. An independent private institution is one that receives less than 50% of its core funding from government agencies and whose teaching personnel are not paid by a government agency.
