The 2009 and 2010 ESF (European Social Fund) Leavers Surveys have provided a detailed account of the characteristics and outcomes of people who have recently participated in ESF funded training programmes. Whilst small differences were made to improve the design of the 2010 questionnaire, the design of the survey primarily remained unchanged. This provides the opportunity to combine data from the two surveys to create a pooled sample of data containing the responses of some 11,000 participants in ESF funded projects. The primary aim of the extended contract is the aggregation of the 2009 and 2010 data sets to facilitate further detailed analysis.
