Abstract: The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), which is managed by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), assesses central basic skills of the adult population – such as literacy, numeracy and problem solving in technology-rich environments – that are considered essential for successful participation in today’s society. These skills are an important foundation for developing various other, more specific, skills and competencies. PIAAC aims to compare these key adult skills across countries. The focus is on the working-age population (between the ages of 16 and 65). However, some countries, including Germany, have national extensions that assess the skills of older adults, thus providing important information on skill maintenance, which is particularly relevant given adjustments to the retirement age in Germany.
