This second issue of "Education for All: Status and Trends" focuses on the interactions between basic education and certain demographic and socioeconomic phenomena. It examines significant correlations between selected indicators and the trends in those indicators over a decade or more. It also presents projections of certain indicators to the year 2000. The introduction examines the impact of population dynamics on basic education, the impact of basic education on population, and the impact of basic education on development. The first section examines the impact of population dynamics on basic education, specifically, school-age population, school dependency ratios, population structure by age group, teacher requirements, the adult illiterate population,and educational finance. Section 2 presents data that illustrate the impact of basic education on population dynamics, including age at first marriage, fertility, child mortality, life expectancy, and rural-urban migration. The third section describes the interaction among basic education, population, and development, specifically, per capita income, employment, agricultural productivity, and reduction of gender inequities. Twenty-one figures and 3 tables present selected educational demographics and socioeconomic indicators for 96 developing countries. Annexes contain a list of countries by geographic region, a glossary, and notes on data. (LMI)
