Abstract

This paper presents a time series analysis of the socio-economic factors influencing the propensity of 16-year-olds to stay on in full-time education in England and Wales. The econometric methodology employed relies on co-integration and `general to specific' techniques. The results suggest that the main factors influencing staying on are the rate of return to education, changing social class structure, unemployment rates and the introduction of special employment and training measures such as the Youth Training Scheme.
