Zambia: Preprimary school enrollment
(measure: percent; Source: UNESCO)
* indicates monthly or quarterly data series
Zambia: Preprimary school enrollment, percent of all eligible children: For that indicator, UNESCO provides data for Zambia from 1979 to 2016. The average value for Zambia during that period was 5.47 percent with a minumum of 0.76 percent in 1979 and a maximum of 7.63 percent in 2016. See the global rankings for that indicator or use the country comparator to compare trends over time.
Preprimary school enrollment can exceed 100% due to the inclusion of over-aged and under-aged students because of early or late school entrance and grade repetition.
Definition: Gross enrollment ratio is the ratio of total enrollment, regardless of age, to the population of the age group that officially corresponds to the level of education shown. Preprimary education refers to programs at the initial stage of organized instruction, designed primarily to introduce very young children to a school-type environment and to provide a bridge between home and school.
