Enrolment rate

Related topics

Enrolment rates are expressed as net enrolment rates, which are calculated by dividing the number of students of a particular age group enrolled in all levels of education by the size of the population of that age group. Generally, figures are based on head counts and do not distinguish between full-time and part-time study. Enrolment rates are also broken down by gender. In some OECD countries, part-time education is only partially covered in the reported data.
