Definition: 
Entry rates are expressed as net entry rates, which represent the proportion of people of a synthetic agecohort who enter the tertiary level of education, irrespective of changes in the population sizes and of differences between OECD countries in the typical entry age.
The net entry rate of a specific age is obtained by dividing the number of firsttime entrants to each type of tertiary education of that age by the total population in the corresponding age group (multiplied by 100).
The sum of net entry rates is calculated by adding the net entry rates for each single year of age.
