The statistics on comprehensive schools contain data by individual school on numbers of pupils in comprehensive schools, special schools at the basic level of education, and in schools at the basic and upper secondary general levels of education. The data on the current autumn describe the situation on 20 September and those on completions of education the previous school year. In connection with the data collection, information is also gathered about special education and subject choices of comprehensive school pupils (see Special education and Subject choices of students).
