In the 1995 National Household Education Survey, adults were asked about six types of adult education activities: English as a second language, basic skills education, postsecondary credential programs, apprenticeships, work-related courses, and personal development courses. About 22 percent of adults reported participating in work-related courses. Among the key findings concerning participation in work-related courses were the following: college graduates (39 percent) were more than twice as likely as persons who completed only high school (18 percent) to participate in work-related courses; the youngest and oldest adults (those under 25 and over 56 years old) were less likely to participate in work-related courses (16 percent or less) than adults between 26 and 54 years old (27 percent or higher); women constituted half of the participants in work-related courses; rates of participation in work-related courses were generally higher among persons in professional or managerial occupations (from 41-71 percent) and lower among those in trades (from 11-22 percent); employed adults (31 percent) were more likely to participate in work-related courses than those who were unemployed but in the labor force (11 percent); and time (47 percent) and cost (30 percent) were the most frequently reported barriers to participation in work-related courses by interested nonparticipants. Information on the survey methodology and data reliability is included. Contains 9 endnotes, 17 references, and 6 data tables. (YLB)
