This document, by The National Research and Development Centre for Adult Literacy and Numeracy (NRDC), presents findings from new research on the relationships between the literacy and numeracy levels of older adults and the extent of disadvantage in later life. Looks at data on proficiency, changes over the life course, and work. Identifies key evidence gaps. Considers the measurement of literacy and numeracy and contains findings on whether those with poor basic skills are more likely to leave the labour force at an early stage, and whether they have fragmented or interrupted career paths. Investigates whether those with low literacy or numeracy have lower wellbeing and quality of life than those with better basic skills proficiency.
