ANNEX II

Sample and precision requirements

1.

According to the Annex to Regulation (EC) No 452/2008, the Adult Education Survey ‘sample size shall be established on the basis of precision requirements that shall not require effective national sample sizes to be larger than 5 000 individuals, calculated on the assumption of simple random sampling. Within these limits, specific subpopulations shall require particular sampling considerations’.

2.

The net sample (excluding unit non-response) should provide estimates within a 95 % confidence interval for a set of indicators listed in paragraph 3. The half-length of the confidence interval for each indicator shall not exceed the threshold provided in paragraph 3 unless an effective sample size larger than 5 000 individuals is required at national level.

3.

The indicators of interest and the maximum half-length of the 95 % confidence interval are:

Indicator

Maximum half-length of the 95 % confidence interval

Participation rate (%) in non-formal education and training

1,4 %

Participation rate (%) in non-formal education and training (males)

2,0 %

Participation rate (%) in non-formal education and training (females)

2,0 %

Participation rate (%) in non-formal education and training (persons aged 25-34)

3,0 %

Participation rate (%) in non-formal education and training (persons aged 35-54)

2,0 %

Participation rate (%) in non-formal education and training (persons aged 55-64)

3,2 %

Participation rate (%) in non-formal education and training by highly educated persons (ISCED level 5-6)

4,0 %

Participation rate (%) in non-formal education and training by unemployed persons

11,5 %

Share of job-related activities among non-formal training activities

4,0 %

For countries with a population aged 25-64 of one million to three and a half millions, the thresholds provided in the column ‘maximum half-length of the 95 % confidence interval’ shall be increased by 20 %.

For countries with a population aged 25-64 of less than one million, the thresholds provided in the column ‘maximum half-length of the 95 % confidence interval’ shall be increased by 40 %.

4.

These requirements refer to a sample of resident units aged 25-64. National samples with a wider scope should allow for the provision of estimates for the resident population aged 25-64 complying with the precision requirements set out in paragraphs 2 and 3.


ANNEX III

Quality requirements and quality reporting

The data quality requirements for the Adult Education Survey refer to the dimensions of relevance, accuracy, timeliness and punctuality, accessibility and clarity, comparability, and coherence in accordance with Article 4(d) of Regulation (EC) No 452/2008.

Member States shall submit quality reports as defined in Article 7 of this Regulation. The reports are to be written according to a standard quality reporting format provided by the Commission (Eurostat). A copy of the national questionnaire shall accompany the quality report.
