  19. Labour market transitions of young women and men in the Middle East and North Africa

    24 November 2016

    This report presents the results of the School-to-work transition surveys (SWTS) implemented in five countries in the Middle East and North Africa region – Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Occupied Palestinian Territory and Tunisia – between 2013 and 2015. The region’s increasing levels of educational attainment, especially among women, accompanied by insufficient demand for skilled workers are among the primary causes of difficulties in the labour market transitions of youth. The report focuses heavily on issues of quality of employment and also draws attention to the path and duration of the labour market transitions of young people, while drawing some conclusions about the characteristics or experiences that can help to achieve a smoother transition.

  20. Can we measure the school-to-work transition of young persons with labour force surveys? A feasibility study

    18 November 2016

    Data gathering in SWTSs is based on retrospective questions addressed to young persons aged 15 to 29 years old. Many of the key elements of the survey can also be found in conventional labour force surveys. The question then arises as the extent to which the results of the SWTS can also be obtained from conventional labour force surveys.
