Social Situation of Young People in Europe

Source: Eurofound

From News Release:

The number of young people living at home with their parents across Europe has increased from 44% to 48% between 2007 and 2011. This holds true especially for young men, according to new research by Eurofound into the social situation of young people in Europe. Nearly half of young people in the EU live in households experiencing some form of deprivation with 27% at moderate levels and 22% experiencing serious deprivation. The ‘Social situation of young people in Europe’, presented to policymakers in Dublin today, puts emphasis on both social and employment issues affecting young people. The policy brief offers a comparative insight across EU Member States of the social situation of youth in Europe and evolving trends.

In most EU28 Member States, more young people were living with their parents in 2011 than in 2007. This increase is significant for both the younger age group (18–24 years), and the older group (25–29 years), and for both men and women. Young men are more likely to live with their parents than young women, and, as expected, those aged below 25 are more likely to live with their parents than those aged between 25 and 29. These proportions vary greatly by country. There were especially large increases in some countries: the greatest increase recorded in Hungary (36%), followed by Slovenia (21%), Lithuania (17%) and Poland (15%).
