Gender inequalities in the school-to-work transition in Europe : short statistical report No.4

This report uses directly comparable data across the EU to examine whether there is a gendered transition from school to work, which can provide evidence to allow nations to reform their social welfare systems in a more tailored way by learning from each other and identifying policies and institutional systems that work the best. The report draws on the EU Labour Force Survey, Ad Hoc Module 2009 ‘Entry of Young People into the Labour Market’, which focuses on individuals aged 15–34 years living in 27 EU Member states, and the candidate country of Iceland and third country Norway.
