School to work transitions in Georgia : a preliminary analysis based on household budget survey data (Inglês)

In Georgia, the lack of employment opportunities and with it, the loss of positive motivation and hope in a better future, is among the critical challenges facing the current generation of young people. Many of the employment problems of Georgian young people are rooted in the critical period of transition from education to working life. Yet the routes that young people take from education to employment are poorly understood, and data relating to this transition period are scarce. There is therefore limited empirical basis for formulating policies and programs promoting youth employment and successful school to work transitions. This paper constitutes a starting point for more detailed analysis on youth labor market status in the Georgian context and it study is aimed at contributing to fill the lack of information about the transition from education to working life. It therefore analyses a set of youth education and employment indicators based on 2002 Georgia household budget survey. Particular emphasis is placed on measuring the initial transition from school to work for different groups of young people, and on identifying the factors affecting this transition.
