The quantitative secondary data on youth in Poland and Germany: tentative presentation and analysis

Post date: 4.12.2017, 12:55

Mapping precarious employment of young people, the PREWORK project team explores various secondary data sources. They include the website and the yearbooks of the Central Statistical Office (GUS) in Poland, the reports by the National Labour Inspectorate and the Labour Force Surveys and the Structural Business Statistics on the Eurostat website. This brief summary is focused on the data acquired from the Eurostat Labour Force Surveys and EU-SILC (EU Statistics on Income and Living Conditions), compiled by Mateusz Karolak and Adam Mrozowicki. As in the other cases, the data has been selected predominantly on the basis of its usefulness to understand and frame the experiences of young people in both countries studied. We have basically referred to the age categories 20-24 and 25-29, but in case of some summary statistics we explored the situation of a larger group aged 15-29. The sixth chapter of this report was prepared by Alexandra Seehaus and Denis Neumann and supplemented by Mateusz Karolak.
