With the fierce competition in society, the acquisition of knowledge is no longer just through school education, but through continuing education. In the 21st century, the whole world is advocating lifelong learning. China is also making efforts. Beijing, as the capital of China, its citizens’ lifelong learning status are directly related to the construction and development of Beijing’s lifelong education system. This study used a questionnaire survey method, and used stratified sampling to extract 1,597 people from all districts in Beijing. The purpose of the study was to investigate the current situation, needs and difficulties of adult lifelong learning in Beijing, to explore the general situation, differences and analyze the affect factors based on the survey results. We hope the conclusions and suggestions of this study can provide relevant policy references and guidance for the Beijing government , Adult Education Society and other units.
