Changes in Levels of Wellbeing during Education to Work Transitions

Wednesday, 13 July 2016: 10:45-12:15
Location: Hörsaal 12 (Juridicum)
RC55 Social Indicators (host committee)

Language: English

This session will be about young people transition between education and work at various ages depending on their career aspirations, level of educational attainment and the prevailing social circumstances.
The prolonged economic recession plaguing many countries increases the uncertainty of education-to-work transitions and may negatively impact on levels of wellbeing and life satisfaction. On the other hand, young people may adjust their expectations and rate their situation relative to others experiencing similar economic constraints. This session welcomes papers examining levels of wellbeing during education-to-work transitions. Papers that compare across countries or across cohorts within one country are particularly welcome.
