Third 2014 PIAAC Bulletin - Do Skills Actually Matter When It Comes to Employment and Earnings? - Now Available

It is increasingly evident that skills play a strong role in the employment outcomes of adults, as ESO’s latest PIAAC bulletin points out. The third bulletin - Do Skills Actually Matter When it Comes to Employment and Earnings? - examines the relationship between education and training on skill levels. It shows, among other research findings, that those who are least active in the labour force performed poorly relative to those that are employed or looking for work.

Over the past several months, Essential Skills Ontario’s research team has been using the OECD’s public database to unpack and analyze PIAAC results in Canada and Ontario. The organization will soon be releasing another PIAAC bulletin that analyzes skills among youth - please stay tuned. As well, our 2014 PIAAC bulletins are now available in French.
