Education by Age, Sex and Level

To access the Education by Age, Sex, and Level option, select Display from the Main Menu, then select sub-option Specialized Displays by Issues and then Education by Age, Sex, and Level. Education by Age, Sex, and Level is also accessible through the Main Menu Map Pop-up options.

Education by Age, Sex, and Level displays are broken down into levels of educational attainment with each level of attainment being distinguished by a different color. Educational attainment is broken down as follows: no formal education, primary education, secondary education, tertiary education and those too young to achieve formal education. Check with the legend at the top of the graph to see what colors represent what level of educational attainment.

These graphs can be projected through time using the Advance and Regress features under the Time menu option located above the chart. Additionally, you can switch from country/region to group by using the toggle on the top menu bar. Using the Distribution Type option at the top of this screen you can select only those who did not attain any formal education, those who attained primary or more, those with secondary or more, or those with tertiary levels of educational attainment.

You are also able to display information as a product of the base case or of a working file. Click on the Change Display option from the toolbar, then the Change Scenario sub-option. You then have the choice of the base case or a working file.

The chart below is the projected educational attainment by cohort and sex of Tanzania for the year 2010. Remember, in order to display groups instead of countries/regions, you have to toggle between the Groups and the Countries/Regions buttons.
