Participation in combined years of secondary education

Number of young people (0-24 years) who participate in the first two years of secondary education (combined levels) and the people in this age group in the third year of secondary education who have not yet chosen a level of education (mostly combined havo/vwo classes).

For school years 2003/'04 and 2004/'05, figures are only available on education funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. This means that pupils in vmbo sections of agricultural training centres, who are funded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, are not included in the figures for these years.

Figures on numbers of pupils are based on the register of personal education numbers of secondary school pupils kept by the Information Management Group (IB-Groep). The reference date is 1 October of the school year concerned. Data on municipality of residence and ethnic group are taken from the municipal population registration.

All figures are rounded to the nearest 10. As a result of rounding total figures may not exactly equal the sum of the separate figures.

Data available from school year 2003/'04.
