Do 28%, 35% or 42% of 14-15 yr olds have a regular paid job in term time?
Each year SHEU publish an annual report with data from their surveys with young people.
In the most recent report, nearly 31,000 youngsters answered a question about paid work.
Around 28% of the 14-15 year olds told us that they have a regular paid job during term time.
Data since 1987 show a general downward trend in those reporting a regular, paid job in term time. Figures from the 12-13 year olds have remained consistent over the 1990s and now appear to be declining.
