Description: early leavers from education and training refers to persons aged 18 to 24 fulfilling the following two conditions: first, the highest level of education or training attained is ISCED 0, 1, 2 or 3c short, second, respondents declared not having received any education or training in the four weeks preceding the survey (numerator). The denominator consists of the total population of the same age group, excluding no answers to the questions "highest level of education or training attained" and "participation to education and training". Both the numerators and the denominators come from the EU Labour Force Survey. From 20 November 2009, this indicator is based on annual averages of quarterly data instead of one unique reference quarter in spring. The indicator is expressed in percentage of the same age population. The EU27 targeted objective for the indicator is under 10% in 2020.
