The Education Equality Query
Profiles have been updated with new education data from 32 recent
Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS). With the addition of these surveys, EdStats now holds data from over
200 DHS that can present a portrait of gender, income and rural/urban inequalities in education
access, progression, and attainment in around 80 countries.
EdStats has added five additional Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) indicators to the
Learning Outcome Query.
The indicators provide information on the building blocks of literacy acquisition such as students' ability to identify
letter names, letter sounds, and the initial sound of a spoken word.
