Abstract. The paper examines the current state of harmonization of state statistical activity with the requirements of the European Statistical System. The purpose of the article is to determine the state of integration of the education statistics system of Ukraine into the European Union to ensure comparability of education data at the international level. The research was carried out on the basis of general scientific methods such as analysis and synthesis, comparison, time-series analysis, structural analysis, graphical method, etc. The legal framework for the implementation of obligations in the field of statistics and information exchange between Ukraine and the European Union was analyzed. The Law of Ukraine on amendments to certain laws of Ukraine related to the activity of state statistics was reviewed with regard to amendments to the Law of Ukraine “On Education”. The main aspects and processes of education systems at the global level were outlined. Special attention is given to creating the necessary conditions for international comparability of education data and indicators. The International Standard Classification of Education is described to provide internationally comparable statistics. The compliance of coverage of relevant age groups by educational programs of Ukraine with international standards was analyzed. Student enrolment has been studied in comparison with European Union member and candidate countries. It was noted that Ukraine had completed a significant amount of work on the commitments towards European integration, despite the emergency situation in Ukraine as a result of the attack by the russian federation. The article draws conclusions about the state of integration of the system of education statistics of Ukraine into the European Union. The task of integrating the system of education statistics of Ukraine into the European space can be carried out effectively only on the condition of consensus, systematic, and compre­hensive consideration.
