Education And Labour Market Transitions Amongst Compulsory Education Graduates And School Dropouts
This paper intends to describe the diversity of paths followed by young people who either drop out or finish compulsory education in Spain. To that aim we deploy optimal matching analysis to analyse a sample of youngsters drawn from a longitudinal data-set (ETEFIL-2005). Their trajectories in the education system and the labour market are clustered into six different patterns. The profiles of youths following each of the broad types of trajectories are described. Academic attainment in compulsory education is found to be very relevant in the determination of the trajectories followed. Social background is crucial for both initial academic results and final educational outcomes.
