Reading trivia:Adult reading ability rises to 86% in 2019

Because in 1820 only 12% of the world had reading skills, and in 2016 it showed an almost opposite figure, namely only 14% of the world’s illiterate. It can be said that in the past 65 years, the global literacy rate has increased by 4% every 5 years, from 42% in 1960 to 86% in 2015.
