Education Trends in Perspective Analysis of the World Education Indicators ‐‐ 2005 Edition: Uruguay
Uruguay still struggles to recover from economic recessions of 1999‐2001 and the 2002 crisis which precipitated a drop in GDP per capita of 11 per cent. The recession left one‐third of the population living below the poverty line. Yet, there have been substantial improvements in the economic situation since then. And, demographic demands are relatively light ‐ 5 to 14‐year‐olds represent only 16 per cent of the total population, third‐lowest in the WEI, and 15 to 19‐year‐olds represent 8 per cent, second‐lowest in the WEI group.
