To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list the percentage of the first sweep of each cohort of the youth cohort study who were in (i) full-time education, (ii) a full-time job, (iii) on youth training or other scheme, (iv) unemployed or (v) other.

The information requested is given in the table:

Notes:

1. Cohorts 1 and 2 covered pupils in state schools only; independent schools were included from cohort 3 onwards.

2. Definition of unemployment does not follow ILO definitions as used in the Labour Force Survey. The unemployed exclude young people in full-time education.
