Youth unemployment and inactivity

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

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.

The Danish dataset used in the project is compiled from register data at Statistics Denmark. The dataset encompasses three cohorts of young Danish residents. The first cohort contains all residents, who were 16 years old in 1993, and they are followed until they are 31 years old, in 2008. The second cohort consists of Danish residents, who were 16 years old in 1998. They are followed up to age 26, in 2008. The third cohort consists of Danish residents, who were 16 years old in 2003, and they are followed until they are 21 years old, in 2008.
