Statistics Canada report on youth reading ability and life-path outcomes


Education professor Don Klinger is available to discuss the Statistics Canada report “Life-path outcomes associated with reading ability” that was released this morning at 8.30 am.

This report uses the most recent data from the 2010 Youth in Transition Survey to examine the associations between reading ability at the age of 15 and educational, labour market, income, and family formation outcomes.

Dr. Klinger is an expert in literacy outcomes and measures of school effectiveness; he has published numerous papers on students’ literacy activities and methods of educational assessment.
