Annually updated statistics showing the proportion of young people from the top three and bottom four socio-economic classes who participate for the first time in full-time higher education, together with the difference (or ‘gap’) between these two participation rates. Also includes additional measures to help inform on the overall trends for young participation in higher education. The time series has been revised, focusing only on 18 year olds, and also in line with changes to the underlying data sources , including revised higher education initial participation rate (HEIPR) figures. Updated to include provisional 2008/09 figures, and now covers 2002/03 to 2008/09.
