The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) recently produced analysis of young participation rates in higher education for small areas over a five-year span. HEFCE estimates the average progression rate by age 19 for Ashfield parliamentary constituency to be 21% from 2005/06 to 2009/10. HEFCE figures are not comparable with those produced by BIS above as they use different methodology. HEFCE figures use population estimates while the BIS figures use matched data covering maintained schools pupils.
Information on progression of pupils to higher education is available from the BIS Widening Participation statistical release of August 2012.
