About Zambia

Most of the nation's schools are operated by local authorities or by missions and are aided by the central government. A small number of schools are directly administered by the government. Projected adult illiteracy rates for the year 2000 stand at 22.0% (males, 14.8%; females, 28.8%). As of 1999, public expenditure on education was estimated at 2.3% of GDP. The University of Zambia was established in 1965, and the Copperbelt University opened in 1986. Other institutions of higher learning include technical colleges and a two-year college of agriculture. All higher-level institutions had 15,343 pupils in 1990.

The majority of Zambia's population engages in subsistence farming. The principal subsistence crops are corn, sorghum, and cassava, while the main cash crops are tobacco, corn, sugarcane, peanuts, and cotton. In 1992, liberalized marketing began for most crops, but because of the 1991/92 drought, corn marketing remained under government control. A bountiful 1993 harvest made a solid recovery from the drought. In 2001, agriculture accounted for 22% of total GDP.
