Literacy and Education Data for the school year ending in 2010 

 

Literacy rates are rising, but women and girls continue to lag behind

 

According to new data released by the UIS, literacy rates for adults and youth continue to rise. Young women aged 15-24 are making the strongest gains, but still lag behind young men. In 2010, 87% of female youth had basic literacy skills, compared to 92% of males. Overall, more than half of countries with data have youth literacy rates of 95% or higher.

 

Despite these gains, 775 million adults (15 years and older) still cannot read or write – two-thirds of them (497 million) are women. Among youth, 122 million are illiterate of which 74 million are female. Even though the size of the global illiterate population is shrinking, the female proportion has remained virtually steady at 63% to 64%.

 

To illustrate the disparities in adult and youth literacy rates, the UIS has created a data visualization with statistics from 150 countries and territories, including literacy rates by sex and the correlation with national wealth.

 

To explore the data, choose an indicator and select one or more countries on the map below. Hold the CTRL-key while selecting multiple countries with your mouse and your selection will appear in the linked graphs.
