Literacy Rate 

Literacy is defined by the percentage of the literate population of a particular age group. The literacy rate for adults is 15 years or older, the literacy rate for young people is 15 to 24 years, and the literacy rate for elderly people is 65 years or older. It is usually measured as the ability to understand short and simple statements about everyday life. In general, literacy includes computational power, and measurements may include simple computational power assessments.  

Literacy Rate demonstrates the overall performance of primary education and literacy programs, instills basic literacy skills in the population, applies these skills to everyday life, and enables them to learn written language and continue to communicate. Literacy represents the potential for further intellectual growth and its contribution to the economic and socio-cultural development of society. 

Factors that have an impact on the Literacy Rate  

95% of the world's illiterate people live in developing countries, and about 70% are women. In sub-Saharan Africa, the literacy rate of women is particularly high. For example, in Niger and Burkina Faso, more than 90% of women can read and write. The most important determinants of the world's literacy rate are school enrollment, life expectancy, and life expectancy at birth.
