Participation in Adult Education: Final Report, 1969.
Okes, Imogene E.
The Adult Education Survey, a supplement to the Bureau of the Census Current Population Survey for May 1969, which recorded course information for the 13,041,000 adults age 17 and over (10.0 percent of the adult population of the U.S.) who during the previous 12 months had participated in adult education, provided the data on which the report is based. The report presents and discusses 35 tables arranged in seven sections, progressing from general to specific, which correlate socioeconomic data with adult education data. Section one describes the characteristics of the adult population of the nation. Section two reveals the extent of individual participation in adult education. Section three presents characteristics of participants as related to aspects of adult education. Section four compares adult education aspects with each other. Section five recombines critical information about participants and their adult education. Section six provides insights into specific concerns of adult educators. Section seven compares classifications assigned to activities by coders and those selected by participants. Six bar charts are included, as are five appendixes containing a glossary, selected references, sample selection and standard error information, demographic questions, and the adult education survey instruments.
