A survey which provides data on the levels of basic adult skills and the skills needed among the adult population.

The 2012 Survey of Adult Skills (ISAS) provides governments with data on the levels of skills and the skills needed among the adult population.

The survey had cross-country comparisons in 3 dimensions:

  • literacy
