The present report emphasizes the interrelationships between education and population, and their resulting effects on development. It investigates such topics as trends in population, including trends in the total and school-age populations and trends in school enrolment, literacy and educational attainment; education and entry into reproductive life; the interrelationships between education and fertility; education, health and mortality; education and international migration; and finally progress in meeting the international goals. The presentation of each topic is followed by a concluding section that summarizes the major points and messages of the study.
