The transition from school to work: the NEET indicator for 25- to 29-year-old women and men in Canada

Young people who are not studying, in training or working make up what is known as the ‘NEET’ group (not in education, employment or training). This fact sheet focuses on young NEET Canadians aged 25 to 29 years old. Understanding and monitoring the NEET rate of young adults is important as it may be an indicator of potential problems in certain systems (education, labour market) or social trends among young adults, such as a change in the relative importance of work compared with time devoted to the family, travel, volunteering, or other activities. It explores in-depth gender-based differences, the effect of young Canadians’ highest level of education, as well as the impact of children in households.
