Educational planners and administrators have been witnessing a steady growth in the amount and variety of information that has been collected and made available to them. With this growing pressure of information revolution and knowledge explosion, the informational requirements of educational planning and management are tremendous. There are various decision-makers, like employers, planners and administrators, who are continuously engaged in the process of educational planning and management. It is important for each one of them to have reliable and relevant information they require for decision-making in education.
