Supplementary notes

Gender Parity Index (GPI) measures the relative access to education of both males and females. It indicates the ratio of girls to boys enrolled at primary level in public and private schools. According to the source, a GPI of less than one suggests girls are more disadvantaged than boys in learning opportunities and a GPI of greater than one suggests the other way around.

The source did not present data for 2010.
