What does this graph show?
This graph shows the proportion of 16 to 18-year-olds not in education, employment or training (NEET) across the English regions.
In 2011, around 10% or 14,000 16 to 18-year-olds in London were not in education, employment or training, slightly lower than the rate of 11% in rest of the country. This was lower than the proportion in the North and the Midlands.
The proportion of NEETs in London has not changed much in the last ten years. Having risen slightly in the mid 2000s, the proportion declined in recent years and by 2011 was a little lower than a decade ago. Much of this decline was concentrated in Inner London. By contrast, the regions in the North (except Yorkshire and Humber) and the Midlands saw a rise in proportion of NEETs over the same period.
NOTE: The data on this page may not be the most recent available because this indicator was not updated in our most recent report, published in October 2015. Nevertheless, we have chosen to keep the page live because it tells an important story about poverty in London, and the general pattern described here is unlikely to have changed significantly.
