|Adult literacy rate - Percentage of persons
aged 15 and over who can read and write.
Gross primary or secondary school enrolment ratio - The number of children enrolled in a level (primary or secondary), regardless of age, divided by the population of the age group which officially corresponds to the same level.
Net primary school enrolment ratio - The number of children enrolled in primary school, who belong to the age group that officially corresponds to primary schooling, divided by the total population of the same age group. Data from household surveys on children attending school have been used to fill blanks and to replace UNESCO reported data that are three years or more older than the survey data. Such data are identified by a "y".
Children reaching grade 5 of primary school - Percentage of the children entering the first grade of primary school who eventually reach grade 5.
