And what about 2016 March 28, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Some stats released in a report from the Department of Education this weekend, as reported in the Irish Times:

Almost 4,000 second-level students who left school in 2011 were in receipt of social welfare by the end of the year, new figures show.
A Department of Education report shows most of the 55,000 students who completed school in that year progressed to higher education (53 per cent) or further education and training (28 per cent).

What of emigration?

However, 7 per cent were not involved in education, employment or training.
The remainder were either in employment (7 per cent), or had emigrated or were involved in seasonal work (5 per cent).

I’m presuming that means that of the overall 55,000 5 per cent emigrated or are involved in seasonal work, or am I reading that incorrectly?

Just 7 per cent in employment.
