This is a report of one of the presentations made at the April 2007 meeting of the National Commission on Adult Literacy. The publication consists largely of 50 color graphics reflecting NCHEMS analysis and 2005 data from multiple sources, including the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Department of Education, GED Testing Service, and others. "NCHEMS concludes that this data set... calls for dramatically expanded and more effective adult education and literacy enterprise in America." Note: this information "should taken to reflect conclusions of the National Commission at this stage" as work is still in progress, but is "presented as a public service".
