Asia-Pacific EFA 2000 Assessment
Education for All


Notes:
1. Countries with more than 95% female literacy rate (15 years and above) in 1990 are not included in this data base.
2. The national and sub-national indicators are not always comparable due to differences in the reporting year, age groups, and more importantly, due to changes in the definition, scope and coverage of literacy since World Conference on Education for All (Jomtien, March 1990).
