A significant number of New Zealand adults do not have the literacy-related knowledge and skills that enable them to read the texts they encounter in their everyday lives. For an in-depth look at these learners you can find a number of reports which analyse the New Zealand data from the international Adult Literacy and Life Skills (ALL) Survey taken in 2006 on the Education Counts website.

Migrants who are learning English make up a large proportion of adults in the lower literacy levels. However, there are also many Pakeha, Maori and Pasifika adults whose first language is English. Most of this group have been through the New Zealand school system.
