This report presents a review of statistical evidence and data availability on early school leaving, school achievement, engagement and youth unemployment across the European Union, with a particular focus on 7 countries. It is the third ‘Project Paper’ within a 5-year EU project on ‘Reducing Early School Leaving in Europe’ (RESL.eu). The Social Policy Research Centre at Middlesex University is the UK partner of the consortium (lead by the University of Antwerp) and the coordinator of a large scale, longitudinal international survey.
