NOTE: These adult educational activities do not include college/university or vocational/technical credential programs, as all providers are assumed to be postsecondary institutions. For adults who reported enrollment in apprenticeship programs who also reported that their employer or some other provider provided the programs, apprenticeship participation by type of provider is not included because apprenticeship provider information compatible with these categories was not collected. Details do not sum to totals and percentages sum to more than 100 percent because people may have taken programs and/or courses or training from more than one provider.
