Indicator 4.5.1 Parity indices (female/male, rural/urban, bottom/top wealth quintile and others such as disability status, indigenous peoples and conflict-affected, as data become available) for all education indicators on this list that can be disaggregated

Gender (GPI), Location (LPI), Social Economic Status (SES), Immigration and Language and Parity indices for educational indicators

Parity indices represent the ratio of indicator value for one group to that of the other. For instance, the gender parity index considers the parity between men and women. Typically, the likely more disadvantaged group is placed in the numerator. A value of exactly 1 indicates parity between the two groups.

Footnote: Several of the GPI and GPIA values are marked 'UIS Estimation' on the source data. Low GPIA values do not represent a property of the GPIA calculation, but are due to low values of the male/female rates. UIS will review these cases in the future.

This table provides metadata for the actual indicator available from UK statistics closest to the corresponding global SDG indicator. Please note that even when the global SDG indicator is fully available from UK statistics, this table should be consulted for information on national methodology and other UK-specific metadata information.
