Four Nordic countries, i.e. Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, together with 20 other countries, participated in the first cycle of the international survey of adults’ skills – Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). A major part of the survey consists of proficiency tests in literacy, numeracy, and problem solving in technology-rich environments.

The articles published in this book draw mostly on the PIAAC data from the four Nordic countries. As the title suggests, the overarching theme in this book is the association between age and the three cognitive foundation skills.

This book is produced by the Nordic research group Skill acquisition, skill loss, and age. The research project is funded by NordForsk, and it is part of the thematic programme Education for Tomorrow.
