DATA FROM OTHER STATISTICAL ACTIVITIES
Hobby schools enter the data into the Estonian Education Information System (EHIS) by the beginning of November at the latest. The Foundation Innove and the Ministry of Education and Research check the accuracy of data and after validation send the data to Statistics Estonia via e-mail.
The data are compared with the data of previous periods and with administrative data sources. All columns are checked to make sure that they have been completed as required.
After data cleansing, validation and linking, anonymised source files are created, which will form the basis for yearly processing.
The hobby education output covers data entered into the Estonian Education Information System (EHIS) on hobby school students as of academic year 2011/2012. Hobby schools with at least one curriculum registered in EHIS and confirmed data for teachers and students as at 10 November are taken into account.
One student is counted multiple times in the indicators “filled student places” and “enrolment”, if the student studies in several fields. If a student studies in one field of education but in several educational institutions or by several curricula, the student is counted multiple times in “filled student places” but once in “enrolment”.
