  • Updating the Adult and Literacy Life Skills Survey: Estimating change in skills distribution since 2006

    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.

  • What young graduates do when they leave study

    This report focuses on the destinations of young domestic graduates. It complements our recent publication 'What young graduates earn when they leave study' which looks at the earnings of young graduates who remain in New Zealand. In this report, we focus on differences in what graduates do rather than what they earn after they complete their studies. We look not only at those who remain in New Zealand but also those who go overseas.

    We also investigate whether trends in what graduates do after they complete their studies have changed in the last eight years or not (looking in detail at cohorts who graduated in 2003 to 2010). Comparing current figures to these historical ones finds that overseas rates have changed little over the past eight years, but employment, benefit and further study rates have changed, particularly during the recent global financial crisis.

    This page includes two downloadable excel spreadsheets. These show results for young domestic graduates who complete qualifications at different levels and in different fields of study.
