Adult Education Surveys Series

Investigator(s): U.S. Bureau of the Census

These surveys, conducted by the Bureau of the Census as part of their Current Population Survey, collected information on participants in adult and continuing education activities throughout the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Information was collected on types of courses taken, types of institutions or agencies offering courses, reasons for taking the courses, and the respondent's age, sex, and race.

The NCES Web site also provides detailed information on the Adult Education and Program Study, the National Household Education Surveys Program, and the National Assessments of Adult Literacy.
