The major religions are Islam (51%), Christianity (35%), and animism (14%). Chad’s population is predominantly rural, with over 70% living in rural areas. The median age of the population is 18 years old, which is one of the youngest populations in Africa. Education levels are relatively low; only 41% of adults have completed primary school education and just 10% have attained secondary schooling or higher. This has a direct effect on literacy rates in Chad; only 28% of adults are literate and this number drops to 17% for women. Poverty remains a major issue in Chad; nearly two-thirds of the population lives below the poverty line and many lack access to basic services such as healthcare, education, and clean drinking water.
