This paper firstly estimates the effect of population changes since 2006 on the skills distribution of the population. This provides a new estimate of the results of the ALL survey taking account of population changes since 2006 This will aid understanding of how much of the change between ALL and PIAAC is likely to be due to the changing characteristics of the population.
Secondly, the paper estimates the reach of adult literacy and numeracy programmes by skills levels in the adult population. This will help us assess the effects we might expect these programme to have on the overall skills distribution of the population.
