This report shows that over the period 2002/03 to 2008/09, full-time young participation for 18 year olds from the bottom four socio-economic classes has increased from 10.5% to 13.7%. Although the participation rate of the top three socio-economic classes appeared to drop earlier in the period, the latest data shows some increases in recent years so that, taken over the period as a whole, there is no clear trend in their participation rate (28.4% in 2002/03 and 27.8% in 2008/09). The participation gap between those from the higher and lower socio-economic classes has consequently narrowed by 3.7 percentage points since 2002/03. The Full-Time Young Participation by Socio-Economic Class (FYPSEC) measure was introduced in 2007 and shows the proportion of young people from the top three and bottom four socio-economic classes who participate for the first time in full-time higher education, together with the difference (or gap) between these two participation rates.
