Social situation of young people in Europe, 24/03/14 [E/NI/S/W]

This policy brief from Eurofound focuses on the quality of life of young people in Europe, looking at dimensions such as living arrangements, social exclusion, relationships and sources of support, as well as participation in society and social/cultural activities.

It reveals that almost half of Europe's young adults are living with their parents - a record level of dependency. By 2011, the percentage of people aged 18-30 who were still living with their parents rose to 48%, or 36.7 million people, in tandem with levels of deprivation and unemployment that surged during five years of economic crisis.

For full details see the Eurofound website.
