Literacy in Nova Scotia: Implications of Findings from IALSS 2003 (2006)

A PowerPoint Presentation

The International Adult Literacy and Skills Survey (IALSS) offers a snapshot of how well adults use literacy skills in daily activities at home, at work, and in the community.

In 2003, for the first time, the IALSS measured literacy proficiency among all of Canada’s provinces and territories. This PowerPoint presentation offers an analysis of the survey’s implications for Nova Scotia specifically.

The author examines the level of literacy proficiency in Nova Scotia and compares it with Canada as a whole; other provinces; and the territories. The presentation also looks at how literacy performance is distributed in the working-age population of the province; how age and education affect literacy and numeracy performance; and the demographic characteristics of people with low literacy proficiency and their location in Nova Scotia.

The information is presented in graphs and charts, with accompanying notes that offer further analysis and explanation.
