Asia and the Near East:
Among the 12 countries in the region
reporting the necessary data, 6 have gender gaps in gross primary
enrollment already at or below 5%, while the remaining 6 have
gaps considerably larger than this.
Although gaps are expected
to narrow in several of the latter, none of the high gap
countries are expected to make the dramatic progress necessary to
meet the target by 1999.
Europe and the New Independent States:
Gender gaps at the primary
level are small in almost all countries in the region.
By 1999,
all countries in the region are expected to fall below the 5%
threshold.
Latin America and the Caribbean:
With the exception of Guatemala,
gender gaps in gross primary enrollment ratios tend to be quite
small in the region.
This situation is expected to remain
largely unchanged through 1999.

Comment(s):
Data in table are provided for USAID assisted countries for
which data are available.
The baseline and 1999 observations are for 1993
and 1999, respectively.
Data are sparse in all regions except Europe and
the New Independent States; changes in country coverage could affect
measured regional averages in 1999.
