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 Display and then Education by Age, Sex, and Level. Education by Age, Sex, and Level are also accessible through the Main Menu Map 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 located above the chart. Additionally, you can switch from country/region to group by using the toggle on the Education Cohorts menu. Using the Distribution Types option at the top of this screen you can select only those who did not attain any formal education, those who only attained primary, those with primary and secondary or those with primary, secondary and tertiary levels of educational attainment.

You are also able to display information as a product of the base case or of a working file. You can learn more about working files in Lesson 2 and Lesson 3. Click on the Change Display option in the Main Menu, then the 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 2005. Remember, in order to display groups instead of countries/regions, you have to toggle between the countries/regions and groups button.
