This report analyses the labour market situation of young people in Europe, focusing in particular on the school-to-work transition, in terms of the amount of time it takes to start the first job after education, while also monitoring the more general transition to adulthood, the age at which young people leave the parental home.

It also investigates the tenacity of many young people who against the odds continue to be employed during the crisis, as well as charting their transitions from temporary to permanent contracts. Lastly, the report analyses policy measures implemented by selected Member States in support of school-to-work transitions.
