Summary

Two hundred representative adults aged 21-69 in eight northeast Nebraska counties, were studied to determine components of future participation in adult education programs (defined in terms of expressed learning interest). Earlier research had established that participation may be defined in terms of expressed learning interest, and that age, educational badkground, past participation in adult education, and membership in voluntary organizations are related to participation. Through the Pearson product moment correlation and a partial correlation technIQue the present study determined that variables previously correlated with participation were also significantly related to expressed learning interest and that knowledge of educational resources (a new variable) was also significantly related. The main conclusions were as follows--(1) expressed interest in educational activities is useful in predicting future adult education participation--(2) participation prior to the previous year has less predictive value than participation during the previous year--(3) knowledge of resources is the principal independent variable in expressed learning interest--and (4) participation prior to the previous year is the only insignificant variable. The document includes three tables and 18 references. (ly)
