Proposals for the Collection of Adult Education Statistics Within the Framework of the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
As science, research, knowledge, and world population continue to expand, so does the rate of change in human society. As technology increases, educational attainments can quickly become inadequate to face the demands of life and work in adult life. Many countries that are advancing technologically are finding their present adult population ignorant of these changes and how to cope with them; thus the importance of adult education is becoming evident all over the world. Planning is needed to implement the necessary concepts for establishing a thorough program of adult education. Yet planning without informative statistics would be lacking vital information. In order to meet this growing need for requested statistics, the office of statistics of UNESCO developed an International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) as an instrument for collecting and compiling statistics of education both within individual countries and internationally. This document represents proposed frameworks for collection and analysis of statistics in adult education. (Author/DEP)
