Adult further education learners: matched data earnings analysis

A study into the potential uses and applications of earnings and employment data sourced from matched administrative datasets.



In January 2014 BIS published new earnings data in the ‘Initial outputs of emerging results from earnings analysis of matched data’. This new study by Cambridge Econometrics and Warwick Institute of Employment Research provides recommendations on how the earnings data is best presented and interpreted for different purposes.

The earnings data is part of a wider project to develop a set of outcome based success measures for post-19 further education. ‘Experimental data covering learners completing education in 2010 to 2011’ is also available.
