Interactive Statistical Maps

  • U.S. Program for International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) Skills Map is an interactive mapping tool that allows users to access estimates of adult literacy and numeracy proficiency in all U.S. states and counties.

  • The Barbara Bush Foundation created a statistical tool on health, income, and below basic literacy rates broken down by U.S. county.

  • Do you know what percentage of adults in your area have low literacy skills? What implications do these data have for adult education?

    This webinar focuses on helping you answer these questions using the U.S. Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) Skills Map.
