description:
The Adult Education and Training Survey (AETS) was conducted by Statistics Canada in February and March of 2003 with the cooperation and support of Human Resources Development Canada. The reference year for this survey was 2002. The Adult Education and Training Survey (AETS) is Canada's most comprehensive source of data on individual participation in formal adult education and training. It is the only Canadian survey to collect detailed information about the skill development efforts of the entire Canadian adult population. The AETS provides information about the main subject of training activities, their provider, duration and the sources and types of support for training. Furthermore, the AETS allows for the exam ination of the socioeconomic and demographic profiles of both training participants and non participants. This survey also identifies barriers faced by individuals who wish to take some form of training but cannot. The AETS was administered three times during the 1990s, in 1992, 1994 and 1998, as a supplement to the Labour Force Survey (LFS). The content of the AETS was revised to take into account recommendations coming from consultation exercises. As a result, more than half of the 2003 survey is made up of new questions and the target population has been modified. The main recommendations in terms of content changes relate to the type of training activity covered and the strategy to select randomly one activity for detailed information.
