This report presents the findings of a systematic literature review of the quantitative evidence on the changing activity pattern of youth transitions in the UK over the past 40 years. The main aim of this review is to understand the drivers and barriers of transitions into the labour market, their long-term effects on subsequent labour market trajectories, and how empirical data available for the UK has been used in the past 15 years to obtain the evidence. We summarise the available evidence and highlight gaps - in particular regarding the cohorts covered and methods used in the research - before making recommendations about data and methods involved in estimating the long-term outcomes of young people’s labour market transitions.
