General description
These data provide information on participation of 16-24 year olds in education and training, by selected age groups and economic activity.

Data collection and calculation
Source: ONS (Annual Population Survey & Mid year population estimates), Welsh Government Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR), Pupil Level Annual School Census (PLASC)

The Annual Population Survey is used to estimate the following proportions:
• Labour market status of those in full-time education;
• Labour market status of those in part-time education;
• Full-time and part-time employment of those in Work Based Learning, who are employed;
• Employer sponsored 'off-the-job' training for those in employment.

The LLWR is used to estimate the following proportion:
• Labour market status of those engaged in Work Based Learning.
These proportions are then applied to the numbers known to be in education, work-based learning and the total population to derive estimates of participation by education and employment. For Work Based Learners, the labour market status at the start of the learning programme collected via the LLWR is used with the addition of some APS data to estimate the proportions in full-time and part-time employment.

Frequency of publication
Annual

Data reference periods
Data is published annually. 2018 data is provisional.

Users, uses and context
Provides policy makers and those working with young people with data to monitor trends in participation and assess the impact of education and labour market interventions on young people.

Rounding applied
Data are rounded to the nearest one hundred. Due to rounding the sums of rows or columns may not add to the total figure given.

Revisions information
2018 figures are provisional and will be finalised in next year's publication, due for release in July 2020.

Statistical quality
There were changes made in the methodology used to derive the participation estimates introduced for the year end 2004 edition. Care should be taken when comparing these estimates with estimates from year end 2004 onwards.

The economic status proportions are estimated from the Annual Population Survey. Therefore, these estimates will be subject to variation due to sampling error and also non-sampling error and should be treated with caution.
