About the OECD Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC)

The Survey assesses the proficiency of young people and adults in key information-processing skills essential for participating in the information-rich economies and societies of the 21st century. These are: literacy, numeracy, and problem solving in technology-rich environments. The Survey allows countries to analyse the level and distribution of skills among their population as well as the extent of skills use in different contexts.
