Using data from the Canadian component of the 1994 International Adult Literacy Survey, Value of Words is an in-depth exploration of the links between literacy and economic security. The relationship between national literacy levels and a country's economic and competitive performance has been documented before. What of the relationship that exists between literacy levels and individual economic success? This report examines the link between literacy and income, including a look at how literacy relates to employment levels and education, and looks at literacy practices and lifelong learning.
