    Description:

    In recent years, adult literacy has come to be seen as crucial to the economic performance of industrialized nations. Literacy is no longer defined merely in terms of a basic threshold of reading ability, mastered by almost all those growing up in developed countries. Rather, literacy is now seen as how adults use written information to function in society. Today, adults need a higher level of literacy to function well: society has become more complex and low-skill jobs are disappearing. Therefore, inadequate levels of literacy among a broad section of the population potentially threaten the strength of economies and the social cohesion of nations.

    A large sample of adults (ranging from 1,500 to 8,000 per country) in Europe (Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland) and North America (Canada, United States) were given the same wide-ranging test of their literacy skills during the autumn of 1994. This report presents the results. The data paint the most detailed portrait ever available on the condition of adult literacy and its relationship with a host of background and demographic characteristics of European and North American adults.

  • Table: 89-533-X
    Description:

    The information in this publication was obtained from the 1991 Aboriginal Peoples Survey. Data tables include information for Canada, the provinces and territories, 11 selected census metropolitan areas, and on and off Indian reserves and settlements. Data are tabulated for adults and children by both total Aboriginal population and by specific Aboriginal group. This survey, conducted in the months following the 1991 Census, included persons who identified with at least one Aboriginal group (North American Indian, Métis, Inuit or a specific group such as Cree or Inuvialuit) and/or who reported being registered under the Indian Act of Canada. Series 1 (Tables 1.1 - 1.2) are summary tables showing the total population reporting Aboriginal identity for each Aboriginal group, including those persons living on and off Indian reserves and settlements. Series 2 (Tables 2.1 - 2.7) provides a detailed breakdown of the language and traditional activities for each Aboriginal group. Series 3 (Tables 3.1 - 3.7) contains similar data but for children aged 5-14 years. Series 4 (Tables 4.1 - 4.7) contains health, lifestyle and social issues for the adult population for each Aboriginal group. Series 5 (Tables 5.1 - 5.7) shows the health characteristics of children (under 15) for each Aboriginal group.
