The All-India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) 2014-15, an annual, web-based, pan-India exercise on the status of higher education in the country was launched by the Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry today.
The survey collects data on student enrollment, examination results, education finance and infrastructure. This data helps in conducting research in education development.
An official statement said that, “The ministry has released the final reports of the AISHE 2011-12 and provisional reports of the AISHE 2012-13, which are in the public domain. While the survey exercise is in its fourth consecutive year now, the AISHE 2013-14, launched on June 17, 2014, is also underway”.
It also said that, “With the launch of the AISHE 2014-15 in October, the time lag in dissemination of higher education statistics has been eliminated”.
