Figure 2: Average literacy and numeracy scores of U.S. 16- to 65-year-olds, by race/ethnicity: 2003
NOTE: “White” refers to non-Hispanic White adults, “Black” to non-Hispanic Black adults, and “Hispanic” to Hispanic respondents of any race. “Other” includes adults who selected more than one race and groups (such as Asians, American Indians, or Alaska Natives) for which sample sizes are too small to reliably estimate scores. Participants were scored on a 500-point scale.
