Bibliographic database of master and doctoral sociological theses on youth presented in Portuguese universities between 1995 and 2010.

Youth in Numbers

This database processes and systematizes an extensive set of statistical data on the social situation of young people in Portugal. The data is produced by several official sources and has, whenever possible, a wide chronological scope beginning in 1960.

The evolution of the social situation of Portugal’s youth is analysed through various different perspectives: demography, family, education and formation, employment and unemployment, health and risk behaviours, accident rate, law, social protection and support, culture and leisure.

This research project has led to the publication of the following books: “Jovens em Portugal: Análise Longitudinal de Fontes Estatísticas (1960-1997)” (Youth in Portugal: Analysis of Longitudinal Data Sources (1960-1997) and “A Condição Juvenil na Viragem do Milénio” (The Condition of Youth at the Turn of the Millennium).

Legislation on Youth in Portugal from 1974 to 2017 is a database that includes the main law, directly or indirectly, related to youth, and public policies developed after the Portuguese revolution in 1974 to the current Government.
