Trends of inequality in access to schooling in Nigeria

Abstract:

Nigeria has long faced the challenge of enabling all children access to education. Yet estimates of the number of primary school-aged children that are out of school differ significantly. This EDOREN report addresses this question by using data from the Nigerian Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) from 2003, 2008 and 2013, to identify the overall number of out-of-school children and over-aged school going children.
