Title:  Tabular Summary of Adult Education for Work-Related Reasons: 2002-03
Description: This report presents selected data on adultsí participation in work-related educational activities in the United States over a 12-month period from 2002-03. These data are from the Adult Education for Work-Related Reasons Survey of the 2003 National Household Education Surveys Program. Interviews were conducted with a nationally representative sample of the civilian, non-institutionalized population age 16 or older who were not enrolled in grade 12 or below. For the AEWR-NHES:2003 survey, work-related adult education was defined as both formal and informal learning activities that were done for reasons related to work. Findings indicate that during the 12-month period between early 2002 and early 2003, 40 percent of adults in the United States took part in one or more formal adult educational activities for work-related reasons. Also, 58 percent of adults who participated in adult educational activities for work-related reasons participated in informal learning activities for work-related reasons.
