As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics. https://gov.wales/statistics-and-research

General description

The information presented here shows registered members of the Welsh Youth Service by local authority and age group, for different measures around individuals reached and accreditation.

Data collection and calculation

The information presented here is collected via annual returns from local authorities as at 31 March each year. Please refer to the guidance notes and data collection form for a description of the criteria for each question and details of the format in which the data are collected (see weblinks).

Data reference periods

For the 2010-11 and 2011-12 surveys, there has been a considerable amount of work on guidance and definitions to ensure a consistent approach between authorities, to clarify some known issues with earlier surveys, and to reflect current policy. As such, this dataset does not contain any direct comparisons with years prior to 2010-11, as it would provide an inaccurate picture in terms of qualitative outcomes and impact. Data for prior years can be found in the sub-folder ‘Data to 2009-10’.

Membership on the Reach system should be a count of individual young people and not involve any double counting (through an individual attending more than one type of provision). Wrexham were unable to identify individual registrations for 2010-11 so that the counts of young people they hold as reached during that year are affected by multiple counting where young people attended more than one provision. To allow for this, the figures provided to the Welsh Government and subsequently reported here for 2010-11 have been reduced by an estimated factor of 1.6. In 2011-12, Isle of Anglesey and Caerphilly were unable to supply membership accurate estimates for 2011-12 and therefore 2010-11 estimates have been brought forward. From 2012-13, nationally recognised accreditations are collected by level of accreditation instead of age.

Revisions information

Data prior to the last period covered have been revised since previously published. Revisions are marked in the data with an (r).

As these data also form part of other data collections, for example counts of properties which are compliant with the Welsh Housing Quality Standard, it is possible that the data will be subject to minor revision in due course. If necessary, for example where revisions are significant, these amendments will also be included in a revised formal release of data (see weblinks).

Statistical quality

Please find more on this in the related statistical publication, as per the given weblink.
Note that the quality of the data collected through this survey continues to develop, as centrally we improve the guidance and definitions used within the survey, and locally youth services refine their management systems, which were purchased using funding from the Welsh Government revenue grant allocation for 2009-10, to ensure that all the data gathered for the audit is robust, current and accurate. Both of these issues impact upon the comparability of data from year to year.
