16 to 19 year olds Not in Employment, Education or Training ( NEET)

The number of 16 to 19 year olds not in employment, education or training in Scotland was estimated to be 36,000 in 2005. That was 14.0% of all 16 to 19 year olds in Scotland. For males the estimated rate was 14.6% and for females the estimated rate was 13.4%.

Table 16 shows the proportion and level of 16 to 19 year olds NEET. For many of the areas the estimates did not meet the minimum reliability thresholds. There are quite high confidence limits around the NEET estimate for Scotland, for a proportion of 14.0%, the true value is likely to lie between 12.6% and 15.4%, which is the 95% confidence interval for this measure. This means that the change on 2004 is not statistically significant - please see Annex A for detailed confidence limits.
