The OECD report ‘Adults, Computers and Problem Solving – What’s the Problem? on digital skills of adults that was presented June 23, 2015 reveals the importance of computer skills in modern work life. It also finds a direct correlation between peoples reading skills and ICT skills, meaning that the better people can read, the better their result on ICT-skills-test. The report shows that even adults with the lowest level of proficiency in solving problems using digital tools had a higher rate of labour force participation (15 percentage points higher)  than adults who had no experience in using digital devices at all. It is obvious that ICT-skills is a solid stepping stone to the labour market as well as earning higher wages, which the report also shows. Source: OECD
