Alicja Grześkowiak


Lifelong learning is an important element of European Union educational strategies. Unfortunately, in Poland the percentage of people who have completed formal education and undertake further training is at a very low level and turns out to be very poor in comparison with other European countries. This study examines the barriers to educational involvement on the basis of the data provided by a Polish nationwide survey on human capital. According to the nature of the data used in this study, selected multidimensional methods are applied to facilitate the identification of the relationships among the barriers of lifelong learning participation as well as their associations with a set of socio-economic characteristics. Clustering procedure is used to detect the possible groups of factors and logistic regression approach is applied to examine the impact of socio-economic issues.
