Eurostat has published a new section dedicated to youth statistics, with elements on various aspects of young people's lives.

Youth statistics play an important role in evaluating progress toward the goals set in the EU Youth Strategy (2010-2018): providing better educational and job opportunities and promoting the active citizenship, social inclusion and solidarity of young people (i.e. those aged between 15 and 29).

The youth statistics presented cover the fields of action identified in the Youth Strategy as well as demographical contextual information in:

  • Demography
  • Education and training
  • Employment and entrepreneurship
  • Health and well-being
  • Social inclusion
  • Culture and creativity
  • Participation
  • Volunteering
  • Youth and the world

The section also presents related publications as well as many links to global and national data sources.
