The present report presents the methodological framework applied to define the benchmark on education for employability to be proposed to European Council in 2012. While the three first sections present the proposed indicator, the fourth section discusses the sensitivity of that indicator to a change in data source and its correlation with counterfactuals. Moreover, section 5 presents the forecasting approach applied to define the target level at the horizon 2020. Section 6 presents the results of the deterministic and stochastic forecasting models and section 7 concludes.
