The ILO will select papers to be presented at a Global Research Symposium on “Labour Market Transitions of Young Women and Men: Innovative research from 28 ‘school-to-work transition survey’ (SWTS) datasets” to be held in Geneva in February 2015.
Young people face several challenges when entering the labour market particularly in developing economies. Not only do they need to find a job, and preferably one that corresponds to their level of qualifications, they also want to develop a foundation for a lasting, stable employment relationship that helps them to progress in life. To characterize these challenges and to support policy-makers in designing adequate instruments to support the transition of young people into employment, the ILO developed the School-to-work Transition Survey (SWTS), a household survey of young people aged 15-29 years.
The surveys offer a wealth of information on the characteristics of education, conditions of work, aspirations and labour market transitions of young people, captured in the survey’s unique assessment of respondents’ history of labour market activities. All related SWTS microdata files, as well as the current national, thematic and regional reports, are already available. All data are disaggregated by sex and rural/urban residency.
SWTS datasets are available for the following 28 countries:
- Asia and the Pacific: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal, Samoa, Viet Nam
- Eastern Europe and Central Asia: Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, FYR Macedonia, Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation, Ukraine
- Latin America and the Caribbean: Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, Jamaica, Peru
- Middle East and North Africa: Egypt, Jordan, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Tunisia
- Sub-Saharan Africa: Benin, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Togo, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia
