Characteristics of youth not in employment, education or training (NEETs) in Sweden

This chapter examines the characteristics of NEETs. It explores individual characteristics such as gender, age, educational attainment, migrant and health status and how they influence the likelihood of being NEET. It looks at household and parental characteristics – how do NEET rates differ by parental education, parental labour force status and parental migrant background? It examines if NEETs are more or less likely to live with their parents than non-NEET youth and looks at how NEETs spend their time. It also looks at how happy NEETs are with their lives and their attitudes towards politics and others in society.
