Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the problems and the underlying factors that hindered the smooth functioning of EMIS at all levels of the education sector. In order to achieve the purpose of this study, basic questions were raised regarding the current organizational structure of EMIS, availability of manpower both in quantity and quality, factors which prevent the timely distribution and collection of data to and from educational institutions and on the accuracy of the information produced to the consumers. The study was carried out in 119 primary and secondary schools. At school level the respondents were school directors and record officers (if any). The second type of respondents were Woreda Statistics Officers, Zone Statistics Officers and Planning Heads, Region Statistics Officers and Planning Heads and at MoE level Department Heads, Panel Heads, experts and Statisticians were inquired. Generally, the total respondents were 209. Questionnaires and interview were data collection instruments. Documents at all levels were also investigated. The data gathered through these instruments were analyzed using chi-square, weighted mean and percentage. The fmdings have indicated that, in the under served regions no manpower was assigned in all the data gathering hierarchies. In other Regions where there is statistical officers, adequate training was not given. The initial salary scale given at every level was incompatible with the burden of workload. In the preparation of the EMIS questionnaire, data consumers were not considered. Due to the absence of manpower, training and instruction was not given on how to fill in the questionnaire, the data produced was inaccurate. Furthermore, the dissemination, collection and preparation of educational information was not timely. Based on the findings and the conclusions drawn the following recommendations were given. New organizational structure should be set up at all the data collection hierarchy, adequate training should be given, information needs of users should be assessed, the questionnaire should consist of detailed instruction on how to fill in the data, and finally, there should be trustful collaboration between the various links of the data gathering chains for the timely delivery of educational statistics.
