Youth unemployment and inactivity

A comparison of school-to-work transitions and labour market outcomes in four Nordic countries

image of Youth unemployment and inactivity

Young people follow highly different trajectories from age 16 up to age 20, a time period which is often argued to be the most critical in terms of their future labour market outcomes. The focus of this report is on investigating the look of these early pathways, as well as on exploring their link to labour market outcomes in adulthood. Results are reported and compared for four Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Performance of young people – an international perspective

The main focus of this chapter is on exploring what internationally widely-used indicators can tell us about educational outcomes, school-towork transitions and labour market performance of young people in the Nordic countries. Simultaneously, the information mediated by these overwhelmingly static indicators serves as an important benchmark when we, starting in the next chapter, turn to presenting results obtained based on our national longitudinal datasets.
