English term or phrase: go into figures
A character is said to go into the figures of rural illiteracy.

very tentatively, since I would like to see the entire phrase
Explanation:
I would translate "the figures of rural illiteracy" as "le cifre dell'analfabetismo rurale". I pass on the verb for lack of context. It could be that the character is part of those figures, or is studying them: it all depends.
