The bar chart shows the literacy rate (% of people who can read and write) by region and gender in 2011. Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant. Write at least 150 words.

The graph shows the percentage of people who are able to read and write by region and gender in 2011. The chart includes some information about seven different parts of the world like some parts of Asia, Europe, Africa, the Americas, etc. It can be seen that all surveyed men and women from central Asia and Europe are literate, while approximately 65% of subsaharan African people on average could read and write.

Among investigated regions, only two regions showed the same literacy rate for men and women. For other regions, the portion of literate men was higher than women. This difference between men and women’s literacy rate was maximum for south and west area.

The proportion of literate citizens from Sub-Saharan Africa is less than 70%. This is the least value between all studied regions. The difference in literacy rate for the men reached to around 30% when comparing central Asia and Africa (100% vs 70%). This value was more for women and was about 40%.

It is clear that there is somehow a great difference between literacy rate for people from different parts of the world. Also in any of the regions under investigation, the percentage of literate women was not higher than men.
