Type: Report, working paper
This working paper provides a quantitative background for the analytical work conducted in the project “Social Exclusion of Youth in Europe: Cumulative Disadvantage, Coping Strategies, Effective Policies and Transfer, EXCEPT”. The main objective of the EXCEPT project is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the consequences of youth labour market vulnerability to the risks of social exclusion in Europe. Specifically, implications of labour market exclusion and insecurities on youth poverty risk and material deprivation, their subjective well-being and health, as well as their ability to achieve independence from the parental home are investigated in a mixed-methods approach. While succeeding papers shall examine the consequences of the labour market exclusion and insecurity, the objective of the present paper is to depict the situation of youth in the European labour market in the form of quantitative, comparative analysis based on the European Labour Force Surveys (EU-LFS), the EU statistics on income and living conditions (EU-SILC), and the European Social Survey (ESS). In addition we have used the Ukrainian Labour Force Survey (ULF) and Ukrainian data received from the State Statistics Committee of Ukraine to depict the situation in Ukraine.
