Scotland's Young People: 19 in '95. The Scottish School Leavers Survey.
Taylor, Stephen
The 1995 Scottish School Leavers Survey, which was designed to obtain information about school leavers' post-school education and employment, was administered to a sample of 18- and 19-year-olds who had left school in 1992, 1993, or 1994. Of the 5,020 individuals sent questionnaires, 2,812 (56%) responded. Of those surveyed, 39% were in full-time education (versus 82% in the 1992 survey), 36% were in full-time employment (versus 7 percent in the 1992 survey), and 24% were employed part time. Nineteen percent of those in full-time employment indicated that youth training was part of their job. Men and women were equally likely to take a full-time job immediately after leaving school. The least well qualified school leavers were most likely to have been unemployed for at least 1 month after leaving school. Although more men than women had gained extra qualifications since leaving school, women were still better qualified than men. Fifty-four percent of unemployed respondents expected to be employed full time within a year. Contains 20 tables/figures and 11 references. Appended are five tables detailing the method of accounting for changes in respondents' main activity and technical notes about the survey.) (MN)
