As of 2013, UIS classifies the school structure in Malawi as having a 6-4-2 structure. Because this is not in alignment with the nationally-defined school structure of 8-2-2, many UIS indicators do not reflect the nature of the official education system. Care should be taken when interpreting UIS data for Malawi.
Among other data sources, unique EPDC data collections for Malawi include administrative data from the National Statistical Office (2005 - 2011), Socio-Economic Database (2000 - 2004), household survey data from DHS (1992, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004, 2009, 2010), IHS (2004), MICS (2006), indicators derived from UIS data, and learning outcomes data including SACMEQ (2003, 2007).
