[holding answer 25 March 2010]: The numbers of young (under 21) undergraduate entrants, from the Sheffield constituencies of Attercliffe, Brightside, Central, Hallam, Heeley and Hillsborough and Sheffield local authority, are provided in the following table. Figures are provided for the academic years 1998/99 to 2008/09.

Percentage change in young undergraduate entrants: 1998/99 to 2008/09

Change (percentage)

Sheffield Attercliffe

+74

Sheffield Brightside

+91

Sheffield Central

+78

Sheffield Hallam

+12

Sheffield Heeley

+44

Sheffield Hillsborough

+53

Sheffield local authority

The Department does not collect data on the number of residents in a particular area who are not in higher education, which would be necessary to calculate a proportion. It is, therefore, not possible to calculate the proportion of young people in each Sheffield constituency and Sheffield local authority who have entered higher education in each year since 1998.
