According to the World Bank, the literacy rate in Pakistan is about 57% for the population aged 15 and above. This means that about 57% of people in Pakistan are able to read and write.
The literacy rate in Pakistan varies by gender, with the literacy rate for males being higher than the literacy rate for females. The literacy rate for males is about 72%, while the literacy rate for females is about 42%. There is also a significant rural-urban divide in literacy rates, with literacy rates being higher in urban areas than in rural areas.
Pakistan has made significant progress in increasing literacy rates in recent years, but there is still a long way to go to ensure that all people in Pakistan have the opportunity to receive an education and acquire literacy skills.
