The decision has not yet been taken on when to publish statistics of starts. The Department for Work and Pensions works to guidelines set by the UK Statistics Authority to ensure they publish statistics that meet high quality standards at the earliest opportunity. The Department will be undertaking a full evaluation of the Day One Support for Young People Trailblazer. We expect the impact assessment looking at 6 months post participation outcomes for the full cohort to be available around late-2014
