Übergang von der Schule ins Erwerbsleben: Ein Arbeitslosengeld-II-Bezug muss nicht von Dauer sein



"The study investigates to what extent German youths receive basic income support, the unemployment benefit II, and in which stages of the school-to-work transition. It reveals different types of intertwined school-to-work trajectories and income support trajectories by applying sequence analysis. The focus is on school leavers of 2008 with an at-most intermediate school-leaving certificate, followed over a period of 6.5 years. Most young surveyed people have never been on social benefits during the observation period. Although some received basic income support for a longer period, they have been able to overcome benefit receipt over time. Therefore, longer benefit receipt not necessarily indicates transition problems. Nevertheless, there are also sub-groups who are at risk of being permanently dependent on basic income support in the first years of employment. These young people are not only from households with parental receipt of basic income support, but most of them also have low school-leaving qualifications." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
