The National Institute of Economic and Social Research report (Research Briefing 1:Establishing the Employment Gap – April 2019) establishes that there is an employment gap between young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and their better-off peers; disadvantaged young people are twice as likely not to be in employment, education or training (NEET).
