Other information: Summary
In this project we explore consequences and risk factors of young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) over the past two decades. The project uses the Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS) which links anonymised individual records from the 1991, 2001 and 2011 Censuses and a wide range of data from administrative sources. We find that being NEET is associated with adverse socioeconomic and health outcomes over the following 20-years. Individual, family, school and area-level factors are found to predict the likelihood of being NEET.
