Feasibility Study in the Collection of Adult Education Statistics.
Simpson, J. A.
This document is the report of a microstudy to determine the feasibility of collecting statistics on the present patterns of participation in adult education programs in Europe. The study was carried out in the city of Exeter in the United Kingdom. A sample questionnaire and the survey data obtained are included in this report which concludes that the results of the study, although deficient, were considerable because of the cooperation of the Local Education Authority. It is also concluded that this microstudy revealed a notable number of national, regional, and local idiosyncracies in the organization of adult education, and it must be open to question whether a comparative study of European statistics in adult education is yet feasible.
