The most recent figures show that there are currently 13.1% of 16-24 year olds defined as NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training). When focusing upon the 19-24 age group this rate increases to 15.9%. While policy makers may take comfort in this representing a further decline from previous figures (0.6 and 1.0 percentage points), the proportion of young people who are NEET in the UK is still above the OECD average.
