Only 8% of the Spanish youth between 20 and 24 years old gained independence
Spain is "no country for young men"
The Spanish youth is advancing, but not at the same pace as the European Union (EU). Since the economic crisis was installed in Spain (2009), have improved the figures of youth development but the poor employment data, and the emancipation did not allow the country to be put at the same level as Europe. Only 8% of Spanish young people between 20 and 24 achieved independence. And more than half of them have a temporary job.
this is the Synthetic Index of Development of Youth Compared to 2018, prepared by the Centre Reina Sofia Adolescence and Youth in the framework of the initiative ProyectoScopio, which examines the impediments of our young people at the time of independence. According to this report, although there are clear advances in education and there are autonomous communities, such as Madrid and the Basque Country, which stood at the head of the rankings -ahead of countries like Sweden, Finland or Denmark-, the whole of the country is located in the last positions of the index, ahead of only Greece, Bulgaria, Italy and Romania.
Despite everything, there are improvements with regard to 2017 because the youth unemployment has decreased, although in the majority of cases, the jobs are characterized by temporality. 56.4% of young spaniards working with a temporary contract, beating well in 24 points in the european average. And over 60% work part-time and not on a voluntary basis. As stated in the report: "the labour market does not allow you to join full time."
In regard to education, Spain also occupies a place lower with respect to the european average, although it does not get worse in relation to the previous year. Despite this, there are seven Autonomous Communities that have managed to overcome it: Basque Country, Madrid, Asturias, Navarra, Castilla y León, Galicia and Catalonia.
it Also highlights the reduction of early school leaving. Young people 18 to 24 years old who dropped out of their studies after the Compulsory Secondary Education were 30% in 2009 and have gone on to be a 18,30% today.
But the unfinished business of the global youth Spanish remain the languages, in particular the learning of at least two foreign languages, situating us in a 27,90% in Secondary Education, post-compulsory, half that in the rest of Europe.
