Home Education Numbers Bar Charts

Over 15,000 children entered home education across the country during the academic year 2013-14, but by the end of the year the total was only 4,000 higher than the previous year.

You can check various combinations across the yellow band above the bar charts and then click "load". The charts will remain in the same order but there will be a change to what is displayed. (To change the order in which the charts are displayed, use the drop down menu at the LH side.) Scroll down for instructions.

Instructions

If you don't check any options, the LAs will be displayed alphabetically. The middle column labelled "new cases" will show the 2013 total + all the additional children and young people who became home educated during the year. The LH column will be scaled relative to the nearest hundred, for example an authority with 175 children will end at 200, while a local authority with 580 home educated children will end at 600.

If you keep with default alphabetical ordering, but check "Absolute Scaling" then the LH column will go up to 1500 as the highest figure in the country is 1400+. This demonstrates how few home educated children there are in most local authorities. If you just want some idea of scale but don't want to include the very highest number, check "Exclude Kent."

If you want to see the percentage increase between 2013 and 2014 year-end totals expressed as a gradient, check "Show Percentage"

Changing the options in the drop down list will alter the order in which the charts appear. The default is alphabetical, but you can also sort by "percent increase" which orders all the LAs from the greatest percentage increase over the year to the most decreased. Within percent increase, you can experiment with the chart display by checking "Absolute Scaling".

Clicking on "July 2014" will display snapshot numbers from smallest to largest, grouped 0-50, 50-100, 100-200 and so on. Quick Link If you check "Absolute Scaling" then the LH column will go up to 1500 as the highest figure in the country is 1400+. Quick Link

Clicking on "July 2013" will display snapshot numbers from smallest to largest, grouped 0-50, 50-100, 100-200 and so on. Quick Link Again there is the option of "Absolute Scaling" where the LH column will go up to 1500 as the highest figure in the country is 1400+. You can also check Hide New Cases Quick Link Retaining these options but checking "Show Percentage" will indicate the percentage increase between 2013 and 2014 Quick Link

Finally, you can choose "new cases" which will arrange each LA by the number of children who started home education during the year, from the smallest number to the largest. With this last option the LH column will go up to 1300 if you check "Absolute Scaling"
