Regional and income group average estimates

One of the primary benefits of indicator modelling is that estimates can be easily and effectively compared. This page is designed to facilitate the comparison of out-of-school values and trends across countries and across key groups of countries from 2000 onwards. Specifically, users can choose to compare along the following dimensions:

  • Individual country, SDG region, World Bank income group, or other groups (least developed countries, LDC; landlocked developing countries, LLDC; and small island developing states, SIDS),
  • Out-of-school rate and out-of-school children,
  • Education level (primary, lower secondary, and upper secondary),
  • Sex (total, female, male)

Each data series is presented in a distinct colour identified by the legend to the right of the plot. Along with the median point estimates, 90% uncertainty intervals are provided in the respective shaded regions. Global estimates are displayed on each plot to provide a reference point (with the exception of the individual country out-of-school children plots as global and country values may differ by orders of magnitude).

Global, regional, income group, and other averages are computed as population-weighted averages using population estimates provided by the UN World Population Prospects.
