With this interactive map visualization, explore local patterns in educational attainment across 51 African countries from 2000 to 2015. Compare how years of education vary between men and women and across two different age groups. Observe trends at multiple spatial scales – from entire nations to individual communities or 5-by-5 kilometer areas. Examine change over time and explore the probability that basic education ( > 6 years) has been achieved in a certain area. Search for specific countries, districts, and communities to view trends. Easily share maps with others.
