The Value of Words: Literacy and Economic Security in Canada (1998)

The International Adult Literacy Survey(IALS) was a seven-country initiative conducted in the fall of 1994. The Canadian component of the IALS study was primarily funded by the Applied Research Branch and the National Literacy Secretariat of Human Resources Development Canada. This document, published by Statistics Canada, is a report that stems from IALS.

The study is divided into three chapters. The first examines the relationship between literacy and economic security or well-being (expressed in different measures of income), taking into account the mediating effects of the labour market. The second chapter explores the link between economic security and the practices of literacy. In the third chapter, the authors explore the relationship between parents' economic security and their literacy-enhancing practices and activities, as well as those of their children.
