Improving the Lives of Adults and Families: Identifying Individual and Systems-level Factors Relating Education, Health, Civic Engagement, and Economic Well-being

Partnered Collections, Special Issues

This Collection builds upon the OECD’s Survey of Adult Skills to extend the evidence-base on the relationship of education and skills to public health for adults and their families, particularly for those most at risk for poor educational, economic and health outcomes. The Collection welcomes articles utilizing the OECD data and research that combines it with other extant datasets. The Collection was seeded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health and Dept. of Education with the explicit intent to serve as a repository for evidence-based research on this topic.
