Distance in % of early leavers (aged 18-24) in relation to National Targets (2010)

Definition. Each country established a national target. Nonetheless, it seems rather ambitious to achieve the EU target as a whole, being some national targets quite far from the EU target (Malta, 29%; Italy, 15%; Spain, 15%; Latvia, 13.4%, Czech Republic, Poland and Slovenia below 5.5%).

Key facts at European level. The map reflects the different national ambitions. Some regions as the Iberian Peninsula and the South-East of Europe require a lot of investments, while other areas such as Eastern France, Northern Germany or Northern Finland already score quite well.
