Generational Insights into new labour market landscapes for youth

— theme: Youth Employment
— country: Australia
— type: Studies

This research report analyses how young Australians are managing their transition from education to work. It is based on data from the Life Patterns project, a two-decade longitudinal research program of the Youth Research Centre at The University of Melbourne. This report focuses on the experiences of cohort two, the generation that left secondary school in 2006 (as also referred to as Generation Y) in order to map their integration to the labour market. The analysis explores what Furlong (2007: 102) describes as ‘the grey area between employment and unemployment’ to understand the nature and quality of young adults’ working conditions. The report also draws on the experiences of cohort one, who left school in 1991 (corresponding to Generation X).
