Participation of Young People in Education and the Labour Market, 2010 and 2011 (provisional)
The key points from the latest release are:
For 16 to 18 year olds:
- Compared with 2010, the proportion in education or training remained around the same level, there was a decrease in those in employment, while the proportion of those not engaged in education or training nor in employment (NEET) increased to 12 per cent in 2011. This continues the trend of the proportion of 16 to 18 year olds who are NEET fluctuating around 10 to 12 per cent, due to contracting employment, as participation in education or training has increased.
For 19 to 24 year olds:
- The proportion in education or training remained the same as in 2010, whilst the proportion in employment increased and the proportion not engaged in education or training nor in employment (NEET) decreased in 2011 (although increased amongst females). Over the longer term the proportion of 19-24 year olds in education or training has remained fairly stable (around 36 to 38 per cent), whilst the proportion who are NEET has increased to higher levels in recent years reflecting contracting employment levels (although improved in 2011).
The information is drawn from a number of sources; data tables on participation in education from 1996 to 2011 will be available by single year of age up to the age of 30 through the Welsh Government interactive service StatsWales.
Please note that participation estimates are being revised in light of new population estimates for 2001 to 2011 released by the Office for National Statistics following new data from the 2011 Census of Population. Revised NEET estimates have been published as part of the quarterly bulletin "Young People who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) Year to 31 December 2012". StatsWales tables will be updated as soon as possible, and the July 2013 Statistical First Release will reflect the revised estimates.
