AbstractThis data file contains competency scores (plausible values) for each participant in the domains ̶ Literacy ̶ Numeracy ̶ Problem solving in technology-rich environments as well as their background information. It contais more detailed information about respondents in Germany than the German public use file for PIAAC available at the OECD homepage (http://www.oecd.org/site/piaac/publicdataandanalysis.htm). The background questionnaire for CiLL is identical to the background questionnaire for PIAAC and is devided into the following topics: A: General Information, such as age and gender; B: Education, such as highest educational achievement, current education, participation in continuing education; C: Current status and work history, such as paid work and unpaid work for family business, information on job search; D: Current work, such as profession, self-employment, and income; E: Recent work, such as profession, self-employment, reason for quitting; F: Skills used at work, such as influence and physical skills; G: Skill use Literacy, Numeracy etc. at work; H: Skill use Literacy, Numeracy etc. in everyday life; I: About yourself, such as readiness to learn and volunteering; J: Background information, such as country of birth, citizenship, language, parents’ profession.

Further Remarks

NotesSurvey unit: adults### To ensure data protection, municipality size is coarsened. Additionally, information on origin, such as country of birth, citizenship and country in which highest qualification was obtained is coarsened. Categorization of these variables corresponds to those used in the German Microcensus. Competencies in Later Life - CiLL is a supplementary study on PIAAC (Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies) with the aim of investigating skills of adults aged 66 to 80 years.
