The recent recession has highlighted the substantial scale of youth unemployment in the UK and worldwide. Although it is assumed that for most young people, being a NEET is a temporary hiatus and sometimes a necessary step in the transition from adolescence into adulthood and subsequent financial independence, for some the disadvantages of economic inertia at this stage in the life course can have long-term effects on their socio-economic outlook later on. The aim of this presentation is to investigate and compare how the influence of cross-sectional variables which are associated with NEET status have changed with time. Using data from the England and Wales Longitudinal Study (LS), we will identify NEETs from a representative sample of 1% of the E&W census population aged 16-29 years. We will draw samples from 1971 and 1991 for comparison purposes. In particular, we hope to investigate associated factors at the individual-, household-, and intergenerational-levels.
