Statistics in Focus: Population and social conditions. Youth transitions from education to working life in Europe Young people's social origin, educational attainment and labour market outcomes in Europe. 2003.6
Within the 2000 EL) Labour Force Survey (LFS) new data were collected in order to analyse the transition from school to working life (ad hoc module data). 14 EU Member States and 6 Eastern European countries agreed with Eurostat to include an additional set of questions their national LFS to investigate this transition. This publication presents some key information, drawn from these new data, on two important issues in school-to-work transitions: (1) young people's average age of leaving continuous education or training and their educational attainment at the time of leaving and (2) the relationship between parents' education and their children's educational and occupational attainment. The indicators presented include data for the countries in which a sufficient degree of comparability has been established and information on social background was collected. This publication has been produced by Cristina lannelli. It is an extract of a larger indicators report prepared by the researchers involved in the "Evaluation and Analyses of the LFS 2000 Ad Hoc Module Data on School-to-Work Transitions" project.
