Something to keep you all occupied.
I am linking to it here.
I am sure you will all look first at your own local areas as have I. Bangor, for instance throws up some surprising figures:
This doesn’t of course factor in students who may travel outside the area to school and the very high figures for “Other” in the survey but it is a good guide as to trends in particular areas. Dungannon is a case in point.
I will put some figures together for other areas over the next few days. The map is on a school by school basis and based on raw numbers so this may take me a little time.
Update: Here are the headline percentages based on the NI Total figures. I have included the 1998 percentages for comparison.
