Recent changes in occupational structure and the declining demand in the labour market for young people, have made it more difficult for school-leavers to find employment. In response to this, policy makers have focused attention on firstly identifying and then removing barriers to school-leavers finding work. This analysis focuses on early labour market entrants; those school-leavers who went directly from secondary school into the labour force, either into work or in search of work, rather than on to further studies. Data was collected from 1995-2000.
