*Net enrolment rates are the total # of students 6-13 yrs old/total # of 6-13 yr olds (school age population) in a district.

**Net enrolment ratios of these districts are above 100% because districts were split. Corrections need to be made in order to normalise the data.

Note the Nyando district data is included in Kisumu District.
