Pre-primary school gross enrolment ratio – Number of children enrolled in pre-primary school, regardless of age, expressed as a percentage of the total number of children of official pre-primary school age.

 

All data refer to official International Standard Classifications of Education for pre-primary (ISCED 0) 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 refer to the most recent year available during the period specified in the column heading.
