This viz provides insights into the number of youth (aged 15-24 years) classified as illiterate in various countries.

Illiteracy among the youth population is a significant concern, as it can impact social and economic development. Here's a brief analysis of the data:



  1. Global Disparities: The dataset reveals substantial variations in youth illiteracy across countries. Countries such as Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Ethiopia have particularly high numbers of youth illiterates, indicating potential challenges in education systems.
  2. Regional Trends: Some regions, like Sub-Saharan Africa, appear to face significant challenges, with countries like Chad and Burkina Faso having high numbers of illiterate youth. In contrast, countries in East Asia, such as China and South Korea, seem to have lower numbers of youth illiteracy.
