Highlights from the U.S. PIAAC Survey of Incarcerated Adults

On November 15, 2016, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), of the U.S. Department of Education will be releasing the report Highlights from the U.S. PIAAC Survey of Incarcerated Adults: Their Skills, Work Experience, Education, and Training. The study of U.S. incarcerated adults is a nationally representative survey of the skills of incarcerated adults in state, federal, and private prisons. This study is part of the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), which surveyed adults in households in the U.S. and 33 other countries in 2012 and 2014.

 The release event will highlight information on the basic skills of incarcerated adults, how their skills compare with those of the U.S. household population, as well as the relationships between skills, education, job training and nonacademic experiences in prison, such as work assignments.
