The different challenges facing young people not in employment, education or training
One in ten young people in Sweden are neither in work nor studying at some time in their youth. For some of these young people, this situation is temporary, while for others it takes up a long period of their youth and risks leading to continued exclusion from society.
If we are to be able to design interventions that reduce the proportion of young people not in work and not in education or training (NEET), we need to know which young people are at risk of being in the NEET group in the long term.
This report uses register data to follow the processes in which young people become established in the labour market over time. It follows approximately 70,000 young people who were NEET in 2004 until they reach the age of 29.
