The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) analysis of the Labour Force Survey.

Detail

BIS regularly conducts internal analysis of the Labour Force Survey (LFS). The most recent LFS release (January to March 2014) shows the employment prospects for young English graduates (aged 18 to 30) are looking bright. Their employment rate is at its highest level since the figures for April to June 2008. The young graduate high-skilled employment rate is at its highest level in nearly 5 years. Graduates also continue to earn significantly more than do non-graduates.
