Based on the Adult Literacy and Life Skills survey conducted in Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Mexico (Nuevo Leon), Norway, and the United States of America in 2003 and 2004, this book presents an initial set of findings that shed new light on the twin processes of skill gain and loss. The book opens with an explanation of the goals and conceptual approach of the survey and comparative profiles of adult skills in participating countries. It then looks at the relationship between education and skills and adult learning and skills. Additional chapters compare the employability of younger and older populations in participating countries, skills and economic outcomes, skills and information and communications technologies, skills and immigration, the effects of parental education on skills, and the effect of skills on health.--Publisher's description

Literacy skills for the knowledge society : further results from the International Adult Literacy Survey by International Adult Literacy Survey( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) started out with two underlying goals: to develop measures and scales that would permit useful comparisons of literacy performance among people with a wide range of ability, and to describe and compare the demonstrated literacy skills of people from different countries. This report extends the analysis initially presented in a 1995 publication that reported results of the first IALS for seven countries (Canada, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, and the United States). Data from five additional countries are included (Belgium, Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Ireland) and results of new studies and analyses of the IALS data set are presented. The introduction reviews key findings and the study's conceptual framework and definitions of literacy employed. Chapter 1 outlines the overall levels of proficiency as well as the distributions of literacy in each country. Chapter 2 offers new evidence concerning the economic and wider social benefits of literacy, including contributions of literacy to productivity and earnings, quality of life, health, volunteerism, and returns to human capital. Chapter 3 examines the relationships between literacy and a range of human characteristics such as home background, age, and gender, and explores how the socio-economic differences observed relate to interactions within families, schools, and the workplace. The final chapter analyzes adults' readiness to learn in a variety of settings, both formal and informal. Annexes include the survey's definitions of literacy performance on five levels and three scales, sample tasks illustrating types of materials used in the literacy tests, a description of how the survey was conducted in each country, detailed statistical tables, and a list of project participants

Historical statistics of Canada by M. C Urquhart( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second edition of Historical statistics of Canada was jointly produced by the Social Science Federation of Canada and Statistics Canada in 1983. This volume contains about 1,088 statistical tables on the social, economic and institutional conditions of Canada from the start of the Confederation in 1867 to the mid-1970s. The tables are arranged in sections with an introduction explaining the content of each section, the principal sources of data for each table, and general explanatory notes regarding the statistics. In most cases, there is sufficient description of the individual series to enable the reader to use them without consulting the numerous basic sources referenced in the publication. The electronic version of this historical publication is accessible on the Internet site of Statistics Canada as a free downloadable document: text as HTML pages and all tables as individual spreadsheets in a comma delimited format (CSV) (which allows online viewing or downloading). This unique reference volume was published in 1983 as a hard copy publication and has been out of print for many years (the first edition had been published in 1965). It depicts the growth and development of Canada from Confederation in 1867 to the modern era in short texts and extensive statistical tables. The compendium originally published by the Social Science Federation of Canada and Statistics Canada, provides professionals and students alike with an important statistical source for historical research and analysis. In addition to time series on employment, housing, health care, education and the national accounts, it includes descriptions designed to aid interpretation and use of the data draws together references to the many original sources. This second edition published by Statistics Canada in 1983, like the earlier volume published by the Macmillan Company of Canada in 1965, was the result of a collaboration of many persons from the academic community, Statistics Canada and the Social Science Research Council of Canada. Both editions enjoyed wide circulation and use, but are long out of print. To preserve this important source of historical statistics on Canada, the original book was scanned and re-captured in electronic form as text and tables. All data have been verified to reflect what was originally published. No changes have been made other than correcting obvious mistakes in the original paper volume such as incorrect references to footnotes. None of the statistics have been corrected, revised or updated
