This shows estimates of the number and proportion of young people aged 16-18 who are not engaged in any form of education, job-related training or employment. This series is a 3 month average (November to January) snapshot estimate of the NEET rate taken from the Local Authority CCIS information system. Please note that the figures for 2011 and 2012 cannot be compared with previous years because in the latest data young people have been recorded according to where they live, rather than where they study, as had been the case in the past. In line with the government commitment to make more data available, 2011 and 2012 figures are shown separately for 16-, 17- and 18-year-olds.
