1 Data show students age 4 and under as a percentage of the population of 3- to 4-year-olds.
2 Reference year is 2010 rather than 2011.
NOTE: The reference year is 2011 for population and enrollment data in all countries except Argentina and Canada, which have a reference year of 2010. However, reference dates may differ within that year; thus, the percentages shown in the table are approximations. As described in the source cited below, enrollment rates for some countries were reported as slightly exceeding 100 percent in one or more age groups (e.g., 5- to 14-year-olds) due to different reference dates for school enrollment and population data. Enrollment in formal education at the preprimary education level includes children in preschool, nursery, or center-based programs and excludes children in home-based early childhood education. Data for Saudi Arabia or South Africa are not available.
