This study has been prepared in order to reveal the literacy status of the population living in Eskişehir province according to the census years in the Republic Period and the education status according to the latest (December 31, 2020) TURKSTAT data. Accordingly, when viewed in terms of the first objective of the research, the people in Eskişehir has always had a higher literacy rate compared to the average literacy rate of Turkey. According to the latest TURKSTAT data, when the educational status of the field is considered, it is (among 81 provinces) seen that it ranks 74th in terms of the rate of illiteracy and 81st in terms of the rate of those who can read and write but do not complete a school, 43rd in terms of primary school graduates, 79th in terms of secondary school graduates, 3rd in terms of high school graduates, 4th in terms of faculty or college graduates, 3rd in terms of the proportion of graduate graduates, and 3rd in terms of the proportion of graduates with a doctorate degree. Accordingly, it is possible to say that as the education level increases, the research field moves to the top of the list in the country. Having an advantageous special position, having a developed industry, attracting people working in creative professions, the suitable physical geography conditions, the high rate of urbanization, the high socio-economic development level, having good net schooling rates, having three universities, being developed in terms of health services, and to be rich in social, cultural, and artistic aspects are the things that make Eskişehir one of the leading provinces of the country in terms of educated population. However, when looking at the education data of the research field in terms of gender, it is seen that women are in the background compared to men. This shows that the dominant patriarchal social structure in the country is seen in the field as a sample.
