Since 2013, the cross-provider provider survey alphamonitor has been a steady element of the regularly produced statistics. Every two years, it provides current reliable data on the status quo in literacy and basic education in Germany.

Providers and programmes in the field are essential institutional prerequisites to enable people with insufficient basic education the acquisition of competences for coping with everyday life. Thus, the survey focuses on programmes categorised by extent, type, level and praticipation. In addition, information on teachers, counselling and institution profile is collected.
