Description:
School life expectancy (years). Preprimary. Total is the total number of years of schooling which a child of a certain age can expect to receive in the future, assuming that the probability of his or her being enrolled in school at any particular age is equal to the current enrollment ratio for that age. For a child of a certain age a, the school life expectancy is calculated as the sum of the age specific enrolment rates for the levels of education specified. The part of the enrolment that is not distributed by age is divided by the schoolage population for the level of education they are enrolled in, and multiplied by the duration of that level of education. The result is then added to the sum of the agespecific enrolment rates. The expected number of years does not necessarily coincide with the expected number of grades of education completed because of repetition.
School life expectancy (years). Tertiary. Female is the total number of years of schooling which a child of a certain age can expect to receive in the future, assuming that the probability of his or her being enrolled in school at any particular age is equal to the current enrollment ratio for that age.

Male is the total number of years of schooling which a child of a certain age can expect to receive in the future, assuming that the probability of his or her being enrolled in school at any particular age is equal to the current enrollment ratio for that age.
