What are the socio-economic consequences of early job insecurity and labour market exclusion of youth in Europe? – EXCEPT researchers answer this question in the 10th EXCEPT working paper
The 10th EXCEPT working paper focuses on the socio-economic consequences of early job insecurity and labour market exclusion (unemployment) of youth in Europe, referring to both monetary aspects (income poverty), as well as objective/subjective deprivation. It describes the financial and material situation of youth in comparison to prime age population, analyses the extent to which young people excluded from the labour market are affected by poverty and deprivation and the examines the association between insecure labour market positions and monetary and material deprivation. Finally, the paper also evaluates the impact of the recent economic crisis by comparing the situation across time: before and after the crisis. The analysis is challenged by the country specific poverty lines, absence of a homogenous measure of socio-economic situation and measurement of the majority of available indicators of poverty and material deprivation on the household level.
