"Adequate literacy skills are defined as “the ability to understand, evaluate, use, and engage with written texts to participate in society, to achieve one’s goals, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential” by the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies. Literacy is measured along a continuum of competency in three broad domains: prose literacy (the ability to understand and use information from texts), document literacy (the ability to find and use information in different document formats) and quantitative literacy (the ability to apply arithmetic operations to numbers in printed material). Research shows that adults who have inadequate literacy skills are more likely to have worse health outcomes, decreased earnings potential, lower levels of civic participation and fewer life opportunities."
