For example, if upper secondary graduates in one country are largely graduates of vocationally oriented programs, and in another country of academically oriented programs, lumping them together in one education category for analysis does not help our understanding of differences and similarities in outcomes of basic skill acquisition and educational selection across these two countries.Therefore, before jumping to conclusions about differences in the quality and academic selectivity of education across countries, it is important to describe ‘net’ skill differences by disaggregated, cross-nationally more comparable educational attainment categories than has so far been done.We however do not yet know very much about how and why competencies differ across countries for the same, supposedly comparable, education levels (but see Heisig and Solga examined, when adjusting for other socio-demographic factors.

Educational qualifications and literacy skills are highly related.

This is not surprising as it is one aim of educational systems to equip individuals with competencies necessary to take part in society.

the structure of the labor market, rather than ineffective formal education or low selectivity of educational transitions by skills.

This kind of confounding is also referred to as compositional effects in the literature (Raudenbush and Kim ).

We will thereby be able to approximate ‘net’ cross-country differences and similarities in competencies by educational attainment.

With the results we hope to be able to answer the following research questions: Firstly, how closely are adult basic competencies related to educational attainment across countries?, chapter 5) report also looks more closely into different factors that may affect adult literacy skills beyond demographics, which is an important analysis step.For example, if the higher educated show comparatively low literacy skills in one country, this may be due to many of them working in occupations not nurturing competencies, i.e.Furthermore, the OECD, as most reports in official statistics, mostly uses three very broad education levels derived from the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) 1997, by only distinguishing between (1) less than upper secondary, (2) upper secondary and post-secondary non-tertiary and (3) tertiary levels of education.Academic studies (for example Heisig and Solga ) often follow this approach.Due to limited data on nationally representative adult samples, there is much less cross-national research on these relationships taking basic competencies or skills into account.
