To ask the Secretary of State for Education what comparative assessment he has made of the proportion of young people (a) in the West Midlands and (b) nationally who are not in education, employment and training.

Official estimates of the number and proportion of 16 to 18-year-olds not in education, employment or training (NEET) in England are published by the Department in a Statistical First Release (SFR) each June and can be found on the Department's website:

http://www.education.gov.uk/rsgateway/DB/SFR/s001072/index.shtml

These estimates cannot be broken down below national level. However, local authorities collect information on the number and proportion of 16 to 18-year-olds NEET in each local area, which are published annually of the DFE website:

http://www.education.gov.uk/16to19/participation/neet/a0064101/strategies-for-16-to-18-year-olds-not-in-education-employment-or-training-neet

Figures for the West Midlands and England at the end of 2011 are shown in the following table.

  16 to 18-year-olds NEET
  Number Proportion (percentage)
West Midlands 12,170 6.2
England 104,080 6.1

Due to methodological differences, the local authority estimates of NEET are lower than the official national estimates.
