Access to school
Access indicators provide information on the volume and characteristics of pupils entering the school system. For example, intake ratios compare the number of new entrants at a given level of schooling to the population of individuals at the corresponding age. Along with participation, access represents a way of measuring the extent to which a school system is inclusive of the wider population.
Intake ratios calculated using household survey data and intake ratios calculated using school census data may sometime yield different results for the same country and year. This is because intake ratios in school census data are based on the numbers of pupils officially enrolled (registered) to enter first grade by the formal school system, whereas intake ratios calculated using household survey data are based on the numbers of children reported to have attended the entry grade of school.
