Education and Disability: Analysis of Data from 49 countries - Information paper No. 49

This paper examines educational disparities linked to disability based on data from 49 countries and territories for five education indicators:

  • Proportion of 15- to 29-year-olds who ever attended school

  • Out-of-school rate (primary school age, lower secondary school age)

  • Completion rate (primary education, lower secondary education)

  • Mean years of schooling of the population 25 years and older

  • Adult literacy rate (population 15 years and older)

The education indicators were calculated with data from three sources, collected between 2005 and 2015: Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) sponsored by USAID, School-to-Work Transition Surveys (SWTS) by ILO, and population census data compiled by IPUMS-International.
