Geo-Literacy: How Well Adults Understand the World in Which They Live.
Nolan, Robert E.
Adult Basic Education, v12 n3 p134-44 Fall 2002
A test of physical and geopolitical geography was completed by 321 adults. Years of formal education and age correlated with geographic literacy. For those with higher educational attainment, informal learning (travel, reading, media) was a primary source of geographic knowledge. Women, regardless of education level, scored significantly lower than men. (Contains 19 references.) (SK)
