The gross enrollment ratio (GER) refers to the total enrollment in a specific level of education, regardless of age, expressed as a percentage of the officially enrollable population at the same level for a given school year. The method of calculation consists of dividing the number of pupils or students by the population having the official schooling age of the same level of education and multiplying the result by 100. When the value of the gross rate approaches or exceeds 100% , This indicates that the country is in principle capable of enrolling the entire population of school-aged age, but does not indicate the proportion of this population actually attending school. Gross enrollment ratios exceed 100% when over-aged and over-young pupils, as well as repeaters, are included.
