We’ve compared publicly available data on every aspect of young people’s lives in the UK over the past ten years. We’re looking for points where the same data has been collected over a period of time so we can see any changes. More than 21 major data sets and 90 pieces of published research have been reviewed. You can view the data here or sign up to our mailing list and complete a short survey to download the slides for free, ready to view or present to others.
We’ve divided our findings into six themes.
