Abstract

SB 36/2012 Young People Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), Year to 30 September 2011 SB 36/2012 25 April 2012 Young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) (Year to 30 September 2011) This Bulletin summarises the available statistics on young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) in Wales. This provides policy makers and those working with young people with data to monitor trends by age and gender and assess the impact of education and labour market interventions on young people, towards the Welsh Government’s strategic approach to reducing the proportion of young people who are NEET as set out in the Youth Engagement and Employment Action Plan (Jan 2011). The definitive source for estimates of the proportion of young people who are NEET in Wales is the annual Statistical First Release (SFR), published on 27 July 2011 Participation of young people in education and the labour market. The latest SFR provided new data for 2009 and provisional estimates for 2010, which are also included within this Bulletin. Additionally, this quarterly Bulletin provides users with more timely, but less statistically robust, statistics between SFRs and includes analysis by gender, age and region, not possible with the annual data. The statistics from the Annual Population Survey are based on relatively small sample sizes of 16- 18 year olds and are statistically less robust than those published in the SFR. Care also needs to be taken when comparing estimates from the different sources due to differences in definitions. The main focus of this Bulletin is the 16-18 year old age group. For completeness equivalent statistics for the 19-24 year old age group are also given in the tables. The statistics included in this bulletin are taken from the following sources: • Statistical First Release ‘Part
