Trends in young participation by parliamentary constituency

These trends are based on the proportion of young people in each parliamentary constituency who entered higher education by the age of 19, for each cohort of 18 year olds between 1998 and 2011. These data correspond to those results published in 'Trends in young participation in higher education'. Note that the rates for 2011 are predicted values. 

Over the period 1998 to 2011, parliamentary constituencies have generally seen increases in their rates of young participation (particularly those in London). On average, those constituencies that started with low young participation rates appeared to have, comparatively, slightly larger increases.
