    According to the report's data, 21 developing countries spend more on arms than on primary schools. Meanwhile, only 2% of humanitarian aid goes towards education (with the vast majority of aid requests for education in conflict-affected states left unfulfilled).

    The consequences are stark. In poor countries affected by conflict:


    • 28 million children of primary school age are out of school (42% of the world's total)
    • a child is twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday (compared with a child born in a poor but stable country)
    • about 30% of the young people aged 15-24 are illiterate (compared with 7% in other poor countries)
    The release of new data on the effects of conflict on development could not be more timely.


    Some key findings:


    • From 1999 to 2008, an additional 52 million children enrolled in primary school. But in 2008, there were still 67 million primary-school age children out of school around the world
    • Half-of the world's out-of-school children live in just 15 countries. The largest population of out-of-school children is in Nigeria (8.3 million), followed by Pakistan (7.3 million), India (5.6 million), Ethiopia (2.7 million), and Bangladesh (2 million)
    • In sub-Saharan Africa, about 10 million children drop out of school every year
    • About 17% of the world's adults – 796 million people – lack basic literacy skills, and nearly two-thirds are women
    • The majority of illiterate adults lives in just 10 countries. The largest population of illiterate adults is in India (283 million), followed by China (67 million), Pakistan (51 million), Bangladesh (49 million) and Nigeria (35 million).

    The report includes projections for key indicators on education progress, and finds that – based on current trends – there could be more children out of school in 2015 than there are today. It also points to key capacity gaps – for example, that another 1.9 million teachers will be needed by 2015 to achieve universal primary education.
    The report also includes data on money for education – from the amount of public spending at the national level to the amount of international aid to education in developing countries.
    So how do the world's education statistics breakdown? We've pulled out some of the data from Unesco's mammoth 2011 report.
