Literacy

The literacy rate of young people (15 to 24 years of age) and adults (aged 15 and above) depicts the percentage of people who can both read and write with understanding a short simple statement about their everyday life.
While the gender gap in literacy among young people has practically disappeared in Europe and across the globe, stark differences remain among adults, particularly in India and, to a lesser extent, in China.
Generally speaking, the higher the literacy rate, the less significant the literacy gap between genders.
