Explaining the data
This information comes from a 2013 study by Blanden and Macmillan (2013). A-level data came from the Longitudinal Survey of Young People in England (LSYPE). The comparison was between children from the most and least deprived fifths of the population based on family income at age 14. Higher education participation data came from a 2012 study by Crawford, linking data from the National Pupil Database and the Higher Education Standards Authority. The comparison was between children from the most and least deprived fifths of the population based on their Free School Meal status and neighbourhood deprivation.
