Adult Literacy Skills


The findings of the 2016 International Survey of Adult Skills, presented at a workshop held at Auckland Council on August 11 2016.


Auckland Council's research and evaluation unit (RIMU) will be working on a more detailed analysis of the Auckland data over the next few months: a summary for Auckland; a focus on Māori; an examination of newcomers to Aotearoa and an analysis of those categorised as operating at Level 1 or below in terms of literacy, numeracy and/or problem solving.
