PIAAC: Male adults by numeracy proficiency level (%). Level 2

  • Provider: World Bank
  • Source URL: http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/LO.PIAAC.NUM.MA.2
  • Catalog: Yearly from 2012 to 2015
  • Localized to: English
  • Description:

    Percentage of male adults scoring 226 to less than 276 points on the 0 to 500 point scale. Tasks at this level require the respondent to identify and act on mathematical information and ideas embedded in a range of common contexts where the mathematical content is fairly explicit or visual with relatively few distractors. Tasks tend to require the application of two or more steps or processes involving calculation with whole numbers and common decimals, percents and fractions; simple measurement and spatial representation; estimation; and interpretation of relatively simple data and statistics in texts, tables and graphs. The target population for the survey was the non-institutionalized population, aged 16-65 years, residing in the country at the time of data collection, irrespective of nationality, citizenship or language status. The proportion of adults scoring at different levels of proficiency adds up to 100% when the percentage of numeracy-related non-respondents are taken into account. Adults in the missing category were not able to provide enough background information to impute proficiency scores because of language difficulties, or learning or mental disabilities (literacy-related non-response).
