"Illiterates" are those who have not learned to write in any language. This is the definition on which American and most foreign statistics of illiteracy are based, because the percentage of those who can read but can not write is so small that it may be ignored. The test of writing one's name and ordinary words is simple, easily applied, definite, and practicable. "Literates" are all who have had even the slightest amount of schooling. Many literate may be ignorant, but illiterates can not write even their own names, and seldom are able to read at all. This study of illiteracy in the United States is restricted to the millions of adults who are absolutely illiterate; it makes no enumeration of other millions of near-illiterates who can only sign their names and decipher a few words with difficulty, nor does it take into account the many millions who can read and write, but seldom do. Literacy is the first requisite for democracy. Unless means are provided for reaching the illiterate and the near-illiterate, every social problem must remain needlessly complex and slow of solution, because social and representative government rests upon an implied basis of universal ability to read and write. This bulletin contains the following parts: (1) Extent of illiteracy; (2) Illiteracy of immigrants; and (3) The workers' class. Statistics of recent immigrant illiteracy is included. (Contains 13 tables, 7 charts and 2 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
