answer text <p>It is local authorities who are responsible for collecting data about the activity of young people in their area.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Education regularly publishes locally collected data on young people's activities, including the proportion of young people whose activity is not known. The latest quarterly figures covering young people of academic age 16 and 17 as at the end of December 2013 are available online at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/participation-in-education-and-training-by-local-authority. These include both the average for England and the figures for each local authority.</p><p> </p><p>The Department published statutory guidance in March 2013 setting out the requirement of local authorities to track young people's participation so that those who are not in education or training can be identified. The guidance is available online at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/participation-of-young-people-education-employment-and-training.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Statistical First Release (SFR) ‘Participation in education, training and employment, age 16 to 18' published on 13 March 2014 shows estimates of both the numbers and proportions of 16- and 17-year-olds not in full-time education or in work-based learning (almost exclusively apprenticeships). As well as those not participating in any education or training, the numbers include young people who were in part-time education and/or those undergoing training with a privately-funded training provider. Estimates are not available at sub-national level for 18-year-olds.</p><p>The SFR shows estimates for Suffolk Local Authority, the East of England, and England. The data is not available at parliamentary constituency level nor does an estimate exist that includes Wales.</p><p>The SFR is published online and is available at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/participation-in-education-training-and-employment-by-16-to-18-year-olds-in-england-end-2012" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/participation-in-education-training-and-employment-by-16-to-18-year-olds-in-england-end-2012</a></p>
