The WALL Survey was conducted in 2004 with a large representative national sample of the adult (18+) Canadian population (N=9,063) to provide unprecedented quantitative detail on learning and work activities and their inter-relations. The survey was administered by the Institute for Social Research at York University.
This survey is part of the research network on “The Changing Nature of Work and Lifelong Learning” (WALL) funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) as a Collaborative Research Initiative on the New Economy (Project No. 512-2002-1011). The network is based at the Centre for the Study of Education and Work (CSEW) at Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE/UT).
The network also includes 12 related case studies. A previous research network, New Approaches to Lifelong Learning (NALL), completed a smaller (N=1,562) related national survey in 1998 (see www.nall.ca). Over 70 related survey and case study papers are posted on the NALL site and over 50 papers on the WALL site.
