The New Zealand Study of Adult Skills collects information about the range of skills we use in our everyday lives, as well as our learning experiences and work history. 

The study is being carried out on behalf of the Ministry of Education by CBG Public Sector Surveying, an independent, New Zealand-based research company with 25 years' experience. This is the second time that New Zealand has taken part. Additional information can be found on the Ministry of Education website, here

Up to two people from each selected household aged 16 to 75 years will be invited to take part.

Each person that takes part will receive $50 in recognition of their time. 
The study is part of an international project coordinated by the OECD, in which 33 countries are participating. Information on the project and findings from previous surveys, can be found on the OECD website, here.
