That answer required new analysis of data from the school census and the national pupil database on cohort level characteristics at all selective schools and across all state-funded mainstream schools.</p><p> </p><p>The disproportionate cost threshold for Parliamentary Questions is set at £850 per question. When estimating the cost of answering a question, the Department for Education considers the grade of each official involved and the time they will spend on it. Using the time taken to calculate the statistics provided for 2014 as a basis, officials estimated that to also provide the statistics for the earlier years requested would result in the threshold being exceeded.</p><p> </p> more like this
