Age by Economic activity by Student accommodation (Great Britain) 2011

Dataset population: Full-time students aged 16 and over

Age

Age is derived from the date of birth question and is a person's age at their last birthday, at 27 March 2011. Dates of birth that imply an age over 115 are treated as invalid and the person's age is imputed. Infants less than one year old are classified as 0 years of age.

Economic activity

Economic activity relates to whether or not a person who was aged 16 and over was working or looking for work in the week before census. Rather than a simple indicator of whether or not someone was currently in employment, it provides a measure of whether or not a person was an active participant in the labour market.

A person's economic activity is derived from their 'activity last week'. This is an indicator of their status or availability for employment - whether employed, unemployed, or their status if not employed and not seeking employment. Additional information included in the economic activity classification is also derived from information about the number of hours a person works and their type of employment - whether employed or self-employed.

The census concept of economic activity is compatible with the standard for economic status defined by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). It is one of a number of definitions used internationally to produce accurate and comparable statistics on employment, unemployment and economic status.

Student accommodation

Student term-time accommodation for all students (i.e. schoolchildren and students aged 4 and over in full-time education) living in households and communal establishments. For students in households, the classification is derived by looking at the other members of the household, their student status and their generation in family.

Student accommodation defines the type of accommodation a schoolchild or student lives in during term-time and therefore relates only to their term-time address.
