The gross enrollment rate is the ratio between all students enrolled in primary education, regardless of age, and the population of official primary education age. As over- and under-aged students are included this ratio can exceed 100%.
The net enrollment rate is the ratio between all students in the theoretical age group for primary education enrolled in that level and the total population in that age group.
