504    Includes bibliographical references 
520    Based on the Adult Literacy and Life Skills survey 
       conducted in Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Mexico (Nuevo Leon), 
       Norway, and the United States of America in 2003 and 2004,
       this book presents an initial set of findings that shed 
       new light on the twin processes of skill gain and loss. 
       The book opens with an explanation of the goals and 
       conceptual approach of the survey and comparative profiles
       of adult skills in participating countries. It then looks 
       at the relationship between education and skills and adult
       learning and skills. Additional chapters compare the 
       employability of younger and older populations in 
       participating countries, skills and economic outcomes, 
       skills and information and communications technologies, 
       skills and immigration, the effects of parental education 
       on skills, and the effect of skills on health.--
