A new data-set on economic and social situation of young Europeans created in the frames of CUPESSE project


In the newly published data article, the authors introduce the CUPESSE dataset in an attempt to spark a debate on the measurements, patterns and mechanisms of intergenerational transmission of economic self-sufficiency as well as its political implications. The collaborative research project CUPESSE generated new survey data on the economic and social situation of young Europeans (18–35 years). The dataset allows for country-comparative assessments of young people’s perceptions about their socio-economic situation. Furthermore, it also includes a variety of indicators examining the socio-economic situation of both young adults and their parents.

The CUPESSE project is dedicated to the comparative analysis of youth unemployment in Europe. By taking issues related both to the demand and supply sides into consideration, the project aims to obtain a comprehensive picture of the causes and consequences of unemployment among young people as well as to formulate policy strategies and recommendations for addressing this ever-growing issue. The project brings together a broad network of researchers and practitioners from the fields of economics, political science, psychology, and sociology.
