International Adult Literacy & Numeracy

On October 8, 2013 the first results from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Survey of Adult Skills will be released, including a Webinar at 2:30 Eastern time (click on “Register” on the left-hand side).

More than 30 countries (the U.S. assessment was conducted in 2012) are participating in this Survey of Adult Skills, which is part of the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). The assessment included literacy and numeracy skills for the population aged 16 to 65. Previous U.S. surveys were conducted in 1992 and 2003 — for a comparison of the findings from both years, see Literacy in Everyday Life: Results from the 2003 National Assessment of Adult Literacy.
