Each year, EAEA conducts a country reports survey among its members. Based on the answers, we have put together graphs which allow website users to see the development of adult education over the years.

The answers regarding the adult education situation reflect the views of our member organisations, so they are not based on scientific research. When asking the governmental representatives of the country, the answer may also be different. The situation in different countries cannot be compared based on this data. In addition we are presenting participation data from Eurostat's annual Labour Force Survey, which is conducted annually, and the Adult Education Survey, which is conducted every 5 years.
