Towards a new benchmark on adult skills for sustainable growth: A revision of potential indicators and sub-indicators for monitoring
This technical report aims to provide a framework for the collection of statistical indicators and sub-indicators on adult skills. This information can be used to monitor skill development among EU countries while comparing its progress with the agreed target and EU average performance. A preliminary list of indicators is proposed based on data availability. Some discussion on their appropriateness is also presented in line with the Joint Assessment Framework methodology (JAF). The conceptual framework and approach build upon the work of OECD et al. (2013) in developing indicators of skills in the context of developing countries.
