Mr Lynch asked the Minister for Labour, upon notice:

(1)   What was the school leaving population in each of the last 10 calendar years.

(2)   What (a) number and (b) percentage was placed in employment in each of those years.

Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The Commonwealth Statistician has supplied the following information in reply to the honourable member's question:

(1)   and (2) Surveys carried out in February of each year from 1964 have provided estimates of the numbers of persons aged 15-24 years who had attended full-time at a school, university, college or other educational institution in the previous year, and who were not intending to return to full-time education. The surveys have also provided estimates of the numbers of such persons who were employed at the time of the survey. No estimates are available from this source as to the numbers employed subsequently.

Estimates and percentages derived from the February surveys in the years 1964 to 1972 are shown in the table below. Since they are based on a sample, they are subject to sampling variability. Corresponding particulars from the February 1973 survey are not yet available.

I would also refer the honourable member to the reply I gave to his Question No. 30.
