An Analysis of Selected Issues in Adult Education. Final Report. Volume II of III. Apendices.
Kirschner (E.J.) and Associates, Washington, DC.
The document is comprised of appendixes to the final report of an analysis of selected issues in adult education commissioned by the Office of Education. The appendixes describe in detail the contents of each of the four data bases constructed for the study, and provide a discussion of the methodology and procedures used in the development of each. The topics covered are: design, background, data sources, methodology and procedures, and strengths and limitations. The four data bases were: a census data base, a participation data base, a Federal program data base, and a key information data base. Ninety-five supportive tables, and documents and materials related to each data base form additional contents of the appendixes. Included among these are a detailed analysis of participation data by demographic groups within education categories, standard errors for census participation data, a list of Federal adult education programs by agency, Veterans Administration cost and participation data, and delivery system tables. The data tended to be derived from the most comprehensive yet technically sound sources in the area which were compatible with the operational definitions used in the study. (Author/AJ)
