Washington, DC – Education Policy and Data Center (EPDC) was founded in 2004 with the insight that sound education policy has to be based on sound evidence, including good data and good analysis of the challenges and solutions. EPDC is a research unit within the Global Learning Group of FHI 360. EPDC serves as a resource for education data, profiles, and data reports on education status at the country level, research papers on issues and challenges in education in developing and transitional countries, as well as medium-term education projections. From 2004 to 2011, EPDC was funded by USAID; since 2011, its capacity and expertise are supported through a combination of generous private grants and fee-for-service partnerships. The FHI 360 global education portfolio encompasses a wide range of programs and interventions in educational development.
