Yes, NEET is important, but it's a sign of much wider disengagement, rather than a predominantly labour market issue. Also, NEET data only goes to 2011. (Not really sure why - it's just derived from the HLFS...)
i think the literature is split on that. it's a labour market issue because your NEETs are quite clearly not seeking work or education in a demography that should be.
and i think HLFS only just started including it in 2011. you can derive it if you need to.
and yeah, drawing a link between NEET rates and 90 day periods would likely be drawing a long bow. but... the remainder of the data in the HLFS might let you know if it is correlated. i'd imagine the question is access.
so why no mention of the NEET rate? surely it's an important measure to include in any analysis for this age group?
RB, a suggestion based on personal opinion: can do drop all the "centre"-right stuff?
It gives them an air of reasonableness that your story deflates.
We should stop pretending that faeries in palaces form a check on overbearing government and get ourselves a written constitution with an entrenched Bill Of Rights.
good luck getting the turkeys to vote for xmas
G-G is the only "check" in the system, but he's only a figurehead. we could have an aussie-style GG coup, but... party man. oh, there's also the select committee system but 'urgency'.
might be time to refer to my recent reading - colin crouch. flax-roots democracy has withered, and "democracy" has become a facade. we vote for people to make decisions for us, so we are entirely dependent on them to act in our interests. but they act on behalf of the people who put them in power - their funders.
and the people just don't care. they have all the toys they want, and the media is 100% compliant.
enjoy your soylent green people.
(oh, PS. not sure that the HRC will be kicking up a fuss.)
same goes man. i spent freaking months suggesting people hire you after our coffee :D
holy schmoleons, now this was a long time ago.
have had time, tide, friendships, singleness, and childlessness all past me by in that time.
congrats on the anniversary man. there was a time when public address was my no.1 tether to a much-missed turangawaewae. that's something you don't forget.
Please trust me when I say I don’t know how to do this
frankly, joe public not having the specific skills is totally irrelevant.
the fact is that people with skills can and probably do have a very very large MSD dataset somewhere that is not inside government.
only when you pick away at the edges of the current one.
