    Number of new female entrants in the last grade of primary education, regardless of age, expressed as percentage of the total female population of the theoretical entrance age to the last grade of primary. This indicator is also known as gross intake rate to the last grade of primary. The ratio can exceed 100 percent due to overaged and underaged children who enter primary school late or early and/or if they repeat grades.
