  • Description
    Employed or Enrolled Youth reports the percent of the population ages 16 to 19 that is enrolled in school or employed, by gender.
  • Full Description
    Youth who are not enrolled in school and not employed are referred to as "disconnected youth." This data originates from the American Community Survey (ACS) 1-Year estimates, table B14005. The ACS collects these data from a sample of households on a rolling monthly basis. ACS aggregates samples into one-, three-, or five-year periods. At this time only state-level data are available on 1-Year Estimates for 16 to 19 year olds are subject to very high margins of error, even at a statewide level, because the survey sample size from is small. Town- and County-level data aggregated from the five-year datasets (considered to be more accurate for geographic areas that are the size of a county or smaller) can be found on in separate datasets.
