Thank you to our friends Rumi (Bangladesh), Srikanth (I’m guessing India; let me know if I am wrong, Srikanth), Peter (China) and Denis (Russia) for taking the time to produce these Task 1 data sources for us. I’ll try to get a bit of everyone’s work up over the next few days.
This bar graphs outlines literacy rates for a number of nations in 2004. Write a report for a university lecturer of at least 150 words describing the information shown here.
This graph illustrates the various literacy levels of a handful of countries around the world in 2004. The countries listed appear to be a fairly balanced group of nations from a variety of regions around the globe.
According to the graph, Georgia and Slovakia, with literacy rates of what looks like 100% and just shy of 100% respectively, were the most literate countries in the list for this time period. Israel ranked third most literate, with roughly 97%. Colombia, Mexico, Indonesia, Qatar, Brazil, Peru and Turkey appeared to share an almost identical literacy rate of 88%. Literacy in Syria in 2004 was slightly lower, at 80%, while the percentages of Tunisia and Cambodia hovered in the low 70s. Haiti, at 62%, Pakistan, at less than 50%, and Sierra Leone, at 35%, make up the most illiterate countries depicted in the list. The average literacy for these countries in 2004 is estimated to be about 80%.
