Footnote There was a breach in the LFS at the turn of the year 2020/2021, therefore the figures before and after the breach are not directly comparable. When it comes to young people neither in work, education nor training, it seems to be a clear violation for those aged 15-19 years. This is probably most related to the fact that the use of indirect interviews ceased from the turn of the year 2020/2021, ie that members of the household could answer on behalf of other household members. In practice, these were often parents who responded on behalf of their children in the survey.
