This chart shows early leaver from education and training in Europe in 2014
Friday fact file: Luxembourg has the 6th lowest rate of 18 to 24 year old school leavers in the EU, according to a recent report.
According to data recently released by Eurostat, 21.9 percent of young people in Spain were early leavers from education and training in 2014, more than any other EU country.
In this case, a young education or training leaver is defined as someone who has completed at most a secondary level education and who has not been in further education or training during the four weeks preceding the survey.
Italy and the UK also have a higher leaving rate than the EU average with 15.0 and 11.8 percent respectively. Eurostat also included some neighbouring countries in their research. Turkey in particular has a very high rate of younger people departing education and training--38.3 percent.
