This bibliography of research in adult literacy and basic skills is selective, covering research undertaken in industrialized countries in the 20 years between 1972 and 1992. It concentrates primarily on research into basic skills undertaken in English-speaking countries, although it also has a European dimension. Entries are categorized under 18 headings: definitions, statistics, social and cultural influences, history, measurement, teaching methods, learning, second language, numeracy, family literacy, employment, target groups, organizational issues, program evaluation, training, general, policy, and bibliographies. Each entry appears under one main heading and includes a number of key words indicating areas covered by the particular piece of research as well as other bibliographical information, such as author, title, date, and ISBN/publisher. A brief abstract of the contents of the research also appears under each entry. (YLB)
