# Rounds to zero.
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: Reference dates may differ within the given years; thus, 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, and center-based programs and excludes children in home-based early childhood education.
