The literacy rate in Germany is quite high. It sits at 99%. That is astounding. It is one of the top scoring countries in the area of literacy. It is due in most part to the priority placed on education within the country. The population is over 80 million and 7.5 of that population can read.
The youth literacy rate is 100 in the female category of females from ages 15-24. Some doubt the reports but most don't. Education and literacy are highly prioritized in Germany and the numbers are merely a reflection thereof.
