Do you know an adult who can’t read?

From ProLiteracy:

ProLiteracy commissioned a nationwide survey this summer to gather further insight on public awareness of adult literacy. This was the second survey ProLiteracy commissioned; the first one was in summer of 2015. The survey was conducted by a market research company and included 1,000 participants. The data revealed some noteworthy results, including that despite a slight increase in awareness, we still have more work to do:

  • Overall awareness of the adult literacy issue in the United States rose slightly from 59% in 2015 to 63% in 2016.
  • Seventy percent of respondents said they do not personally know someone who can’t read. With 1 in 6 adults in the U.S. struggling with low literacy, most people probably do know an adult who can’t read.
  • Eighty-three percent of respondents are not aware of adult literacy organizations in their communities.
