What data is included in the analysis?
1 To date we have received information on a total of 1388 participants from 25 local authorities. This relates to individuals who have completed or dropped out of their Activity Agreement between 1 April 2011 and 31 March 2012. After the quality assurance process (removing duplicate records and those without sign up or exit dates) a valid sample of 1035 remains broken down as follows:
|Completers (excluding those who were not offered, didn't sign up, or dropped out||786 (74%)|
|Drop-outs (signed up but dropped out part way through the agreed programme)||267 (26%)|
|Total Valid Sample||1035 (100%)|
2 Unless stated otherwise, figures will be given throughout the paper for the total valid sample of 1035 individuals. Where data is missing for a particular variable, this is presented as a partial sample. Please see Annex 1 for more information on the limitations of the data and the quality assurance process.
