In accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018, we are working to improve the accessibility of our outputs. As a result, the format of the Young People Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) tables has changed. There has been no change to the amount and type of data, only changes to its presentation.
Feedback on the new format is welcome and should be sent to LFS@finance-ni.gov.uk.
