What we know
We know that establishment patterns for young people are similar throughout the EU and OECD countries, but that the establishment process takes a different form.
The social context in which young people live plays a major role in their transition to the labor market. Their parents' educational background and their income tend to affect young people's educational and career choices.
It is also clear that those who were born in Sweden of Swedish parents will establish themselves in the labor market faster than those who are born abroad or have parents who were born abroad, according to labor statistics.
International comparisons with European and OECD countries shows that young people's establishment patterns are similar, but that the establishment process, when the transition occurs, and how young people tend to live during that process differs between countries.
