- Statistics & Research
16-18 year olds
- Statistical first release (SFR) basis - As at end 2012(p), 10.2 per cent of 16-18 year olds were NEET (11,600) compared with 12.2 per cent (14,000) at end 2011.
- APS basis - New data For the year ending Quarter 4 2013, 11.8 per cent of 16-18 year olds were estimated to be NEET, the same as for the year ending Q4 2012.
- Pupil Destinations basis – New data As at Nov 2012, 3.7 per cent of Year 11 leavers were NEET compared with 4.2 per cent in 2012.
19-24 year olds
- SFR basis- As at end 2012 (p), 23.0 per cent of 19-24 year olds were NEET (59,900) compared with 22.2 per cent (57,400) at end 2011.
- APS basis- New data For the year ending Quarter 4 2013, 20.3 per cent of 19-24 year olds were estimated to be NEET, compared with 22.9 per cent for the year ending Q4 2012.
The definitive source for estimates of the proportion of young people who are NEET in Wales is the annual SFR. This bulletin provides users with timelier, but less statistically robust, statistics.
- Statistical first release ‘Participation of young people in education and the labour market’ using education data sources and the Annual Population Survey (APS).
- Annual Population Survey (ONS).
- Careers Wales Pupil Destinations from Schools in Wales survey.
Our consultation on the publication of official statistics, proposed that this bulletin is published annually rather than quarterly, with instead a web page maintaining latest headline data on the 3 key series of data related to young people who are NEET updated quarterly. Therefore this will be the last quarterly update of this bulletin, with an annual update published from then on in July.
