Factors linked to young adult literacy

This report explores the factors linked to the literacy of young adults (aged 16-24) in New Zealand using statistical modelling. Literacy here refers to literacy in English only, and the particular aspect of literacy considered is document literacy, which refers to the ability to read and interpret non-continuous texts, such as tables, diagrams and maps. To identify the factors especially important to young people, it compares these with the factors related to document literacy in the population aged 25-65.
