What made you do this?
There were 790,000 young people (aged 16 to 24) in the UK who were not in education, employment or training (NEET); this number was unchanged from April to June 2017 and down 65,000 when compared with July to September 2016.

The percentage of all young people in the UK who were NEET was 11.1%; the proportion was unchanged from April to June 2017 and down 0.8 percentage points from July to September 2016.

37.9% of all young people in the UK who were NEET were looking for work and available for work and therefore classified as unemployed; the remainder were either not looking for work and/or not available for work and therefore classified as economically inactive.
