The study provides both descriptive and empirical evidence about the main youth labour market problems in Spain.
Using the experiences of other EU economies as a benchmark, the paper documents the performance of Spain as regards a wide set of youth labour market dimensions.
These include employment and unemployment rates, youth wages, decisions to work and study, youth mobility, type of employment contract, time to find a first job, skill mismatch, etc.
Cross-country econometric evidence from different micro-datasets is reported to understand the role played by several underlying supply/demand factors which might explain the difficulties faced by the Spanish youth labour market.
