Type: Newspaper/magazine article
Using recent data from the Round 3 of the European Social Survey (ESS 2006/2007), this study provides a detailed comparative picture as whether there are similarities/differences across European countries with regard to: a) the actual timing of key life events in the transition to adulthood; and b) attitudes regarding the ideal age and sequencing norms of early life course transitions. We try to elucidate whether such similarities/differences among young adults are linked to economic constraints (e.g. unstable attachment to the labour market) or lifestyle options (e.g. inclination to postpone the assumption of long-term family commitments).
