dc.description.abstractYoung adults in the transition from education to employment are vulnerable to employment insecurity. We explore trajectories of employment insecurity over six years after leaving education, and investigate their associations with sociodemographic predictors, self-reported health and life satisfaction. Based on a sample of 2752 education leavers from a representative longitudinal dataset in Germany, we identify five distinct trajectories via latent class growth analysis: (1) 'smooth transition' (43%) signifies a quick entrance into permanent employmenten
dc.description.abstract(2) 'inhibited transition' (23%) comprises repeated temporary employmenten
dc.description.abstract(3) 'stepping stone' (21%) indicates a transition from temporary to permanent employmenten
dc.description.abstract(4) long-term NEET' (not in education, employment or training, 10%) describes persistent exclusionen
dc.description.abstractand (5) 'dropout' (3%) captures transitions from permanent employment to NEET status and/or temporary employment. Low education and migration background are associated with long-term NEET status. Both low education and high education are associated with inhibited transitions. Young women face fewer difficulties after leaving education than men, but parenthood increases women's likelihood of insecure trajectories. Long-term NEET status and inhibited transitions are associated with persistently lower health and life satisfaction. We find deteriorating health among long-term NEETs and the stepping stone trajectoryen
