Adult Education

The Adult Education Survey (AES) is carried out among all European countries, as part of the EU Statistics on lifelong learning indicators. There have been two waves of data collection so far - in 2007 & 2011.

In 2011, this survey was carried out under EU framework regulation, EC Regulation 88/2011.

This survey mainly involves the collection of data on the participation in formal, non-formal and informal education (FED, NFE, INF). For each type of educational activity, information such as the volume of hours of instruction/study, specialisation of course and methods of payment are obtained.

A news release containing the findings of the 2011 AES exercise was published by NSO in 2013.
