Labor Force Participation in Formal Work-Related Education in 2000-01 - This report examines how adults in the labor force use formal education and training to acquire and maintain their workforce skills. The report examines: (1) labor force participation in work-related education, (2) the role of postsecondary education in work-related education, (3) employer support for work-related education and (4) the role of employment-related inducements to participation. Participation in work-related education was fairly common, with 47% of adults engaging in one of six types of learning activities, with training courses being the most common, followed by postsecondary courses and programs.
