(3) how many people in (a) Jarrow constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d)

Information on the number of young people who have received Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) is available at Local Authority Level, but not at constituency level. EMA take-up is defined as young people who have received one or more EMA payments in the academic year.
The following table shows EMA take-up during each academic year since inception for England, the North East, South Tyneside Local Authority area and Gateshead Local Authority area.
|Area type||Area||2004/05||2005/06||2006/07||2007/08||2008/09||2009/10 to end-January 2010|
In comparing across years, it is important to understand that national roll-out was phased over several years. In the first year EMA was available to all 16 year olds across England and to 17 and 18 year olds in former pilot areas. In 2005/06 EMA was available to all 16 and 17 year olds nationally. From 2006/07 EMA was available to all 16, 17 and 18 year olds nationally.
EMA take-up data showing the number of young people who have received one or more EMA payments during 2004/05, 2005/06, 2006/07 and 2007/08 is available on the LSC website, at the following address:
