Understanding the Risks of Social Exclusion Across the Life Course: Youth and young adulthood

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The Social Exclusion Task Force (SETF) commissioned four studies based on the secondary analysis of existing data with a view to providing evidence to better understand social exclusion at different stages of the life course. This report covers 16-24 year olds.

There are three main questions tackled in this project:
* What proportion of young people experience different forms of risk leading to social exclusion and how does this vary for young people in different circumstances?
* How do risks overlap and which young people are prone to multiple disadvantages?
* How do risks vary over time and what drives social exclusion?
