Where do young people do worst? How intergenerational fairness differs across the 12 regions of the United Kingdom, 28/10/13 [E/

This research for the Intergenerational Foundation found that in almost all regions intergenerational unfairness is pronounced, but the North East appears to be the worst place to be young today because of high levels of youth unemployment and low levels of engagement with national politics.

Although the region benefited from more affordable housing and better GCSE grades, it topped a league of intergenerational unfairness and the factors measured in the Foundation's research reduced the prospects for young people. Northern Ireland and the East of England appear to be most intergenerationally fair.

Breakdowns are give for each region, including Scotland.
