Finland is the world's most literate nation – if you look at this data from 2016 about literacy achievement tests and support.
If you rank nations only on their reading assessment results, Singapore would come top, followed by South Korea, Japan and China.
But which countries read the most?
Research was undertaken to answer this very question in 2005, with NOP's Culture Score Media Habits index.
The research found that consumers in the UK and the US read below the global average (just over five hours a week for both), as the below chart by Statista shows.
According to the index, India read the most, followed by Thailand and China.
Eurostat also measured the amount of books that some countries have read in the past year in 2011.
