AES stands for Adult Education Survey and is coordinated by the statistical office of the European Union (EUROSTAT). Statistics Austria is responsible for the national implementation.
The Adult Education Survey (AES) provides a broad overview of the education and learning activities of the Austrian resident population aged from 18 to 69 years. This includes formal education, non-formal education (for example: courses or workshops) and informal learning. Searching for information and guidance on educational activities as well as difficulties in participating in education are also parts of the survey.
The data collection takes place in Austria from October 2022 to March 2023.
