Mean years of schooling

gender ratio, 1870–2010

Info Edit

Data was gathered from newly compiled census observations and information on the year of establishment of the oldest school in individual countries. Data is expressed as a percent, given by the mean number of female years of schooling divided by the mean number of male years of schooling. A score of 100% indicates parity, while a score less than 100% indicates that males receive greater schooling than females.
