The Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) is a national household survey that offers an overview of the state of children’s education in rural India. The “basic” ASER survey was first administered in 2005. It was carried out yearly until 2014, after that it was moved to an alternate-year cycle in 2016. The “basic” ASER gathers data on preschool and school enrollment for kids between the ages of three and sixteen. It also conducts one-on-one assessments with kids between the ages of five and sixteen to determine their basic math and reading skills.

Interestingly, in Class 11 or higher, more than half of the students are enrolled in the Arts/Humanities stream (55.7 per cent), followed by STEM (31.7 per cent) and Commerce (9.4 per cent). Females are less likely to be enrolled in the STEM stream (28.1 per cent) than males (36.3 per cent).
