This dataset provides data on literacy rates, primary and secondary school attendance rates access to improved water and sanitation, household access to electricity, and household ownership of radio and television. Unlike other datasets, notably the World Bank’s World Development Indicators (WDI), this dataset provides data at the subnational level, specifically the first administrative district level. Furthermore, the data is comparable both within and across countries. This subnational level of data allows for assessment of education and household characteristics at a more relevant level for allocation of resources and targeting development interventions.
