NEET and participation: local authority figures

Data showing the proportions of 16- and 17-year-olds in education and training and an estimate of those not in education, employment or training (NEET).



Local authorities have a duty to track young people’s activity to identify those not participating and support them to do so.

The data shows the number and proportion of 16- and 17-year-olds recorded as in education or training in each local authority area and an estimate of the proportion and number of 16- and 17-year-olds who are recorded as NEET or whose activity is ‘not known’.
