The gross enrolment Ratio is obtained by dividing the enrolment by the relevant age group child population. In the case of GER at the primary level, total enrolment in Grades I to V, irrespective of age, is considered, which is then divided by the corresponding child population ( 6 to 10+ years) and multiplied by 100 to obtain GER at the primary level. Because of overage and underage children, the GER is considered a crude indicator of children’s participation in educational programs. Therefore, it presents a misleading picture and is generally not used in plan formulation.
