As requested by the Economic and Social Council, the Population Division, Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat, annually prepares the world population monitoring report on the topic of that year's session of the Commission. The fullreport is accompanied by a summarized version, the "concise report". The report covers topics such as trends in population, education and development; education and entry into reproductive life; the interrelationships between education and fertility; education, health and mortality; and education and international migration. The report finds that education plays a key role in national development, besides being a prime component of individual well-being. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
