Logo Génération

Since 1992, The "Géneration" surveys based on a longitudinal methodology, analyse school leavers’ job insertion and trajectories in their first and years of active life. Every 3 years, a new survey is conducted among young people leaving the education system in the same year, according to their level of education or training. Primary objective is the production of job insertion indicators (employment unemployment rate, average salaries, recruitment schemes, type of contracts, job matching, etc.), broken down by different levels of education, certifications, disciplines, type of institutes.

Génération survey results are widely disseminated and published on different Céreq collections.

The proceedings drew principally on 20 years of the Génération surveys. These surveys, launched in the 1990s, constitute a system for tracking young people's career trajectories and take account of the multiplicity of factors that influence the education-to-work transition.
