About us

Evaluation Through Follow-up - UGU is a national research study that is used, among other things, for evaluation and research within the school.

UGU stands for "Evaluation Through Follow-up" and is one of the country's largest research study in the field of education, the country's largest survey of schools. As part of the national evaluation of the school, our study contributes with nationally representative data that can be linked to other databases. Researchers in psychology, economics, political science and pedagogy use our longitudinal data to know more about the Swedish school system and the labour market.
