Pathways to work: an analysis of 28 School to Work Transition Surveys
From 09/05/2014 to 09/05/2014
Despite the multitude of studies, there is relatively little evidence on the process that leads young individuals in low and middle-income countries to acquire and possibly retain jobs, and especially quality jobs. The seminar presente an analysis of the transition paths from school to work of youth in a sample of 28 countries for which we have novel and yet unexploited data, the ILO School to Work Transition Surveys. These data are the result of an unprecedented effort by the ILO, which, for each country, has collected retrospective survey information on all work experiences since leaving school on a representative sample of individuals aged 15-29. The data will us to characterize the transition paths from school into work of young people and identify the role of observable characteristics (gender, area of residence, age left education, parental education and work experience while in school) in explaining these transitions. We will also present an analysis of the expected duration of the transition.
