The crushing impact of illiteracy

This document presents the results of a pilot study by ECLAC and UNESCO Santiago on the social and economic impact of illiteracy in three Latin American countries (Ecuador, Dominican Republic and the State of Sao Paulo in Brazil).

The study concluded that the comparison of income between literate and illiterate groups, using information from household surveys, is a relatively simple and reliable method. In all the analysed cases, there was a significant difference in labour income earned by the illiterate and the literate; as the education gap widens among groups, so does the difference in income. The authors, Rodrigo Martínez and Andrés Fernandez, demonstrate that the loss of productivity (labour income) generated by illiteracy is high enough that its eradication should be considered not only a social goal but an economic priority that brings net benefits by generating its own financial resources. Therefore, the eradication of illiteracy should be considered an investment rather than a cost.
