1. Note that due to changes in the LFS questionnaire, this estimate is based only on those who started their apprenticeships in the year 2000 or later.

2. Due to the small sample size of the unemployed cohort at local area level, model-based estimates are used to improve quality and reliability of estimates at local authority level. Model-Based estimates use information from the Claimant Count which, as it is an administrative measure, has accurate information all areas. The model is said to borrow strength from the claimant count.
