The effects of the economic crisis on the school to work transitions of youths in France

Abstract : Using longitudinal data from the 'Generation' surveys carried out by Céreq that provides information on the first seven years on the labour market, this paper focuses on the consequences of the 2008 crisis on employment and job quality for the youth. Firstly, using the Generation 2004 survey, the situations are studied in terms of employability and vulnerability for two sub-periods (2004-2008 and 2009-2011). Secondly, youth transition is analyzed in terms of labour market segmentation or access to the primary segment or to the 'good jobs'. By doing so, it is possible to observe the effects of the crisis in terms of access to 'good jobs' using a model regression and another youth cohort (Generation 1998). Has the economic crisis contributed to more segmentation in the French labour market and especially for the second generation Maghrebians?
