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

A PowerPoint Presentation

In 2003, for the first time, the International Adult Literacy and Skills Survey (IALSS) measured literacy proficiency among all of Canada’s provinces and territories. The IALSS is a snapshot of how well adults use literacy skills in daily activities at home, at work, and in the community.

In this PowerPoint presentation, the author analyzes the survey’s implications for Prince Edward Island specifically. Among the points discussed are the level of literacy proficiency in PEI; PEI’s literacy levels in comparison with Canada as a whole, other provinces, and the three territories; the distribution of literacy performance among the working-age population of the province and the region; differences in literacy skills between men and women; the demographic characteristics of people with low literacy proficiency; and the distribution of literacy performance in the labour force, among immigrants, occupations, industries and earning groups.

The information is presented in charts and graphs. Accompanying notes provide additional explanation and analysis.
