Headline: Young people participate longer in education

WIESBADEN – In 2016, more young people aged 15 to 24 who lived as unmarried children in their parents’ household participated in education compared with 20 years ago. Microcensus results show that 84% of the young people attended a school or higher education institution last year, while their number was by 10 percentage points lower in 1996 (74%). The higher proportion of young people in the education system was, among other things, due to longer periods of education. So, for instance, an increase was recorded in the number of students. A comparison of the age cohorts shows that, in 2016, slightly more than half of the 24-year olds living in their parents’ household attended a school or higher education institution (52%, including 36% at institutions of higher education). 20 years ago, their proportion was slightly larger than one third (35%, including 28% at institutions of higher education).For further information:Sabine Rammelt,tel: +49 (0) 611 / 75 46 04,contact form
