This publication presents the results of the Iowa State Adult Literacy Survey as referenced in the publication "Adult Literacy in Iowa: Results of the State Adult Literacy Survey" in graphic form. The State Adult Literacy Survey was a research project in which 12 states assessed the literacy skills of their adult populations. As a component of the National Adult Literacy Survey, the survey obtained information on literacy levels, average literary proficiencies, and the connection between literacy and education. Literacy was defined for these surveys as the ability to use printed and written information to function in society, to achieve one's goals, and to develop one's knowledge and potential. The average prose, document, and quantitative proficiency scores of adults in Iowa were approximately the same as those of adults in the Midwest region, but were higher than those of adults nationwide. The 62 graphs displaying this information are cross-referenced to the specific data tables in the complete report. (SLD)
