The concept of NEET (young people not in employment, education or training) has, since 2010, been widely used as a tool to inform youth-oriented policies in the 28 Member States of the European Union. While it has been a valuable addition to more traditional indicators used to understand the economic and social vulnerability of young people and their labour market participation, it has often been criticised because of the heterogeneity of the population it captures. This report explores the diversity of NEETs and suggests seven subgroups into which the NEET population can be disaggregated using data routinely collected for the EU Labour Force Survey. Through analysis of the data for each of these subgroups, it offers a contemporary overview of the composition of the NEET population, both at EU28 level and in each Member State. It is hoped this information will help policymakers more precisely target interventions intended to ease young people’s engagement with the world of work and training. A separate annex presents detailed information on the composition of NEETs in the 28 Member States

    Análisis de la diversidad de la población «NiNi»

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    El concepto de «NiNi» (joven que «Ni estudia Ni trabaja») se ha utilizado de forma generalizada desde 2010 como herramienta para la formulación de políticas orientadas a los jóvenes en los 28 Estados miembros de la Unión Europea. Aunque ha constituido un valioso complemento de los indicadores más tradicionales utilizados para entender la vulnerabilidad económica y social de los jóvenes y su participación en el mercado de trabajo, a menudo ha sido objeto de críticas por la heterogeneidad de la población que comprende. En este informe se analiza la diversidad de la población NiNi y se propone su división en siete subgrupos a partir de los datos que se recogen habitualmente para la Encuesta de población activa de la UE. El análisis de los datos sobre cada uno de estos subgrupos permite disponer de una visión de conjunto actualizada de la composición de la población NiNi, tanto a escala de la EU28 como de cada Estado miembro. Es de esperar que esta información ayude a los responsables de la formulación de políticas a definir con mayor precisión los objetivos de las intervenciones destinadas a facilitar la participación de los jóvenes en el mundo del trabajo y la formación.
