Graph 10.49 indicates the labour force status of all students aged 15-64 years at May 2001. Some 56% of student studying Year 12 or below were not in the labour force, while 35% were employed. In contrast, 25% of other students were not in the labour force and 68% were employed.
Most people aged 15-19 years attending an educational institution to study at May 2001 were either not in the labour force at all (48%) or were employed part-time (36%). Some 37% of students aged 20-24 years were employed part-time, and another 29% were not in the labour force (table 10.50). Full-time employment was much higher among students aged 20-24 than among those aged 15-19 (27% compared to 8%). In both age groups, students who undertook part-time study were more frequently employed full-time than part-time.The 'full-time participation rate' describes the proportion of the population, at specific ages, in full-time education or training, or in full-time work, or in both part-time education or training and part-time work. The full-time participation rate identifies the proportion of the population which has a low risk of marginal participation or non-participation in the labour market, and consequently determines the proportion that is at risk. At May 2001, the full-time participation rate for people aged 15-19 years was 86% and 77% for 20-24 year olds.
