Country Profile


The indicators below are useful to assess progress within countries over time and for different demographic groups, and to compare adult learning participation rates across countries. Both types of comparison can be insightful: for instance, the data show that across all EU Member States, low-qualified adults are less likely to have participated in adult learning during the past four weeks. However, low-qualified adults in Sweden are still more than twice as likely to have participated in learning than adults in the EU on average (23.7% vs. 10.8%). Hence, a cross-country comparison shows that it is possible to achieve relatively high participation rates also among the low qualified.
