Young People: Milton Keynes

Volume 508: debated on Monday 22 March 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what percentage of people aged 24 years or under in Milton Keynes are in education, employment or training. (321875)

In 2008 it is estimated that 90.9 per cent. of 16 to 24-year-olds1 in Milton Keynes local authority were in education, employment or training. These figures are the most recent available from the Annual Population Survey.

Please note that, because the sample sizes for local authority estimates are small, this estimate is subject to large sampling variability and should therefore be treated with caution and viewed in conjunction with its confidence interval2 of 5.3 percentage points. This means that the true value is somewhere between 85.6 per cent. and 95.8 per cent.

1 Age used is respondents’ academic age, which is defined as their age as at the preceding 31 August.

2 Those given are 95 per cent. confidence intervals.
