NEETs in Australia – Young parents, carers, and those who did not finish high school are more likely

Among youth, young parents, carers, and those who did not finish high school are more likely to be NEET and have higher average welfare costs, meaning initiatives that focus on these segments could have outsized benefits.

Referring to the graph below, note that where young people fall into multiple cohorts, they were allocated to one of the groups using the following prioritisation: 1) young parents, 2) young carers, 3) did not finish high school, 4) finished high school only, 5) less than 6 month work experience and 6) parents did not finish high school.
