World map indicating literacy by country in 2013 (2013 UN Human Development Report and Individual statistics departments) Grey = no data

This is a list of countries by literacy rate. The figures represent a mixture of data collected by the CIA World Factbook,[1] and national self-reported data. Where data was unavailable, older figures were used. For highly developed/high income countries where literacy statistics were not collected, a rate of 99% was assumed.

List[edit]

According to the CIA World Factbook, almost 75% of the world's 775 million illiterate adults are concentrated in ten countries (in descending order: India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Egypt, Brazil, Indonesia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo). Women represent two-thirds of all illiterate adults globally. Extremely low literacy rates are focused in three regions: South Asia, West Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. The global literacy rate for all people aged 15 and over is 84.1%. The global literacy rate for all males is 88.6% and the rate for all females is 79.7%.[2]
