Primary school net attendance ratio – Number of children attending primary or secondary school who are of official primary school age, expressed as a percentage of the total number of children of official primary school age. Because of the inclusion of primary-school-aged children attending secondary school, this indicator can also be referred to as a primary adjusted net attendance ratio.

 

All data refer to official International Standard Classifications of Education (ISCED) for the primary and secondary education levels and thus may not directly correspond to a country-specific school system.

 

Notes         
^ Due to the cession in July 2011 of the Republic of South Sudan from the Republic of the Sudan, and its subsequent admission to the UN on 14 July 2011, disaggregated data for Sudan and South Sudan as separate States are not yet available for most indicators. Aggregated data presented are for Sudan pre-cession (see Memorandum item).
– Data not available.                     
x Data refer to years or periods other than those specified in the column heading. Such data are not included in the calculation of regional and global averages.                     
y Data differ from the standard definition and are included in the calculation of regional and global averages.                     
* Data refer to the most recent year available during the period specified in the column heading.                     
** Excludes China.
