- Statistics & Research
The survey was carried out during 2010, and assessed overall literacy and numeracy skills of adults (aged 16-65) in Wales (through English medium), and Welsh medium literacy skills of Welsh-speaking adults in Wales. The surveys were designed as far as was practically possible to replicate similar surveys carried out in 2004/05, in order to consider changes in skills levels.
Overall results (from English medium survey)
- There has been improvement in literacy levels: 12 per cent of adults were assessed to have Entry Level literacy or below, a decrease from 25 per cent in 2004.
- 29 per cent of adults were assessed at Level 1 (37 per cent in 2004) and 59 per cent at Level 2 or above (an increase from 38 per cent in 2004).
- There is little change in numeracy levels: 51 per cent of adults were assessed to have Entry Level numeracy or below, similar to the 53 per cent in 2004.
- 29 per cent were assessed at Level 1 (25 per cent in 2004) and 21 per cent at Level 2 or above (22 per cent in 2004).
- Literacy and numeracy levels were higher amongst the employed, those with higher levels of household income, those with higher qualifications, and amongst the older age groups.
