Originally a UK Government classification for young adults aged between 16 and 19 (sometimes 16 to18) who, for whatever reason, are not in employment, education or training. This classification does include those who are long term sick or who might be looking after family members.
Young adults aged between 14 and 15 can be classified as at risk of becoming a NEET.

Although there are occasions where the hikikomori may venture outdoors usually at night to buy food, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare defines hikikomori as individuals who refuse to leave their parents' house, and isolate themselves from society in their homes for a period exceeding six months. While the degree of the phenomenon varies on an individual basis, in the most extreme cases, some youths remain in isolation for years or even decades. Often hikikomori start out as school refusals, or futōkō (不登校) in Japanese (an older term is tōkōkyohi (登校拒否)).
