Pakistan Literacy Rate

Pakistan Literacy Rate: The literacy rate in Pakistan is divided into three regions that is in cities, villages and tribal areas. The literacy rate in Pakistan has been increasing every year. Below are some points regarding Pakistan Literacy Rate.

Pakistan Literacy Rate The literacy rate of 87% in Islamabad from 20% in Kohlu district. In the latest period the Pakistanis in the age group 55-64 was the literacy rate of almost 30% of persons aged 45-54 were the literacy rate of about 40% of those between 25-34 were literate 50% while those aged 15-24 were literate in more than 60%. These data show that with each generation, literacy rate in Pakistan has increased by about 10%. The literacy rate in different regions, in particular by gender. In the tribal areas of literacy among women is 7.5%. In addition, English is rapidly spreading in Pakistan, with 18 million Pakistanis (11% of the population), which has authority over the English language that makes it 9-ranked English speaking nation world and third largest in Asia. In addition, Pakistan produces about 445,000 graduates and 10.000  informatics graduates a year.

Economic Census is the major source of statistics on economic activities in the country. It covered 3.249 million Establishments / Households of which, 64% were in Punjab, 18% in Sindh, 15% in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 2% in Balochistan and 1% in Islamabad. 44% of the total Establishments were in rural areas and 56% were in urban areas. 53% of the total establishments were in Wholesale and Retail Trade, Restaurants and Hotels Sector, 20% Manufacturing Sector, 22% in Community, Social and Personal Services Sector. Among the households establishments slightly over 66% household establishments were engaged in manufacturing activities, about 9% in Agriculture (Poultry Farming, Fish Farming and Livestock) and about 21% in Community Services and Personal Services Sectors and about 4% engaged in Wholesale Retail Trade, Hotels and Restaurants Sector.

Pakistan Literacy Rate 68% of the total manufacturing industries covered in Economic Census were in Punjab, 13% in Sindh and 16% in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. 2.851 million Establishments were such which employed 1-5 persons, whereas, 0.079 million have employment size of 6-10 persons, about 26 thousand establishments with 11-50 employed persons and 1617 establishments with 51 or above employed persons. 97% of the total establishments covered were owned by the individuals. Almost 68% of the manufacturing establishments in the households were engaged in Textile Wearing, Apparel and Leather Industries. The Census revealed that 2.958 million establishments had employed 6.580 million persons, of these 0.456 million were female, which is about 7 % of the total employment. Among the females, 15 % were Self-employed / Proprietor or Partners and 30 % were unpaid family helpers; the remaining 55 % were paid employees.

However all resulted in vain since there was no or meager improvement in this regard Pakistan Literacy Rate. A lower literacy rate is an outcome despite such acts. Since the inception, education is the most neglected area and the situation did not improve despite of taken measure to educate people. Even there is a large population who did not receive basic education. It was 15 years back, the government allotted 2.6 % of the G.D.P for the progression of education however, to add injury to an insult, it was limited to 1.8% and the situation got worst.

There are other developing nations like Turkey which allot most of its G.D.P to Education department, Pakistan ignored this department. With such non serious attitude towards Education, and there remain a dearth of well -educated and skillful individuals. Among the SAARC Nations, Pakistan is at the sixth and at the 159 th position among the 174 World countries. According to a Government Official Report, the literacy rate in Pakistan is 34 % which is doubtful.

The lower literacy rate is said to be an outcome of greater population, poverty and unemployment ;however it can not be justified since there are other countries like Vietnam,Combodia,India,Kenya etc where the advancement in literacy rate was observed despite of such factors. Take another example, Sri Lanka, a fellow SAARC Nation enjoys the same per annum income as Pakistan however it has 90 % literacy rate. It is said that about 2 Crore, 2 Lacs children are yet to get enrolled at Primary level. The present situation in education imparting institution is more than worst.

Take an example government schools 54% of our population never went to school. About 46 % are enrolled in Public schools. Most of these schools have large premises however lacked the facilities of electricity, water and sanitation. Even some are ghost schools and don’t even exist yet the funds are utilized by the authorized personnels. People unsatisfied with such situation of Public schools, can not admit their wards to Private schools since the tuition fees are quite high as compared to public schools.

Education has been converted into a fruitful business and we can find a number of Private schools located in the same area within short distances. These schools are opened in small bungalows which are rental and do not suit to a standard school premise. Another drawback is that the Private schools are limited to urban areas and these have no presence in rural areas. Another noticeable point is that a good number of population is admitted to Madarsas ;which are institutions of Islamic religious teachings. These offer free teaching so where there is inflation all around, people find it as a blessing in disguise.Pakistan Literacy Rate | Literacy Rate in Pakistan

History has witnesses that no nation has been able to accelerate in terms of development without considering these aims as pre-requisites. Education is one of these basic rights that provide a tool for development to nations. Pakistan is one of the developing countries that is thriving for improvement in this area. Each and every government has launched a stream of five year plans that were arranged so as to fulfill the Millennium Development goals.
