Source: Unesco, 


UNESCO statistics show gaps in the many cases where the international organization has not obtained national data. The set of three maps shows an increase in the out-of-school rate throughout the school years, as well as persistent strong regional inequalities. At primary level, the out-of-school rate is generally high except in the countries of sub-Saharan Africa (especially the Sahel) and, more locally, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. At upper secondary level, it is only in Europe, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand. that rates of school attendance are high. These rates are lowest in Africa and South and South East Asia.
