Everyday literacy, numeracy use surveyed for OECD report

A survey on literacy, numeracy and problem-solving skills and their use in everyday life is underway in Aotearoa as part of the OECD’s Survey of Adult Skills. 

The Ministry of Education has contracted Auckland-based research company CBG to interview a representative sample of New Zealanders aged 16-75 to glean information which will form the second cycle of the international study. CBG is contacting households across the country until about the end of June for a field trial ahead of the main survey in 2022/23. The field trial will confirm that processes and procedures are fit-for-purpose.

The Ministry of Education encourages those selected to participate given the value of the resulting information for understanding New Zealanders’ skills. Your individual information is confidential and fully protected.

The local name for the survey is the ‘New Zealand Study of Adult Skills’, and it is part of the OECD’s Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC).
