Question S3W-25964

Question S3W-25965

The Annual Population Survey is the official source for data on people not in employment and not in full-time education. The table below shows estimates from the survey of the percentage of people aged 18 to 25 in the parliamentary constituencies of Glasgow Shettleston and Glasgow Baillieston combined, who were neither employed nor in full-time education in the years 2007 and 2008. The data for 2008 are the most recent available. It is not possible to give separate estimates for each of the constituencies as the survey sample sizes for the individual constituencies are very small and below the reliability threshold for estimates.

Note: The survey sample sizes for these estimates are small; hence the estimates are subject to a high amount of sampling error. The difference between the estimates for 2007 and 2008 is not statistically significant.
