Topic: Footprints from school to work? Or not engaged in education, employment or training (NEET) in an Arctic sociocultural context


The overview article aims to explore the education, training and work footprints of multicultural adolescents and young adults in northern Norway.

Design and setting
The Norwegian Arctic Adolescent Health Study (NAAHS), a cross-sectional, school-based survey conducted in 2003–2005, linked with registry data from the National Education Database (NUDB) and the National Insurance Registry (FD-Trygd) (2008-2012).

4,881 tenth graders participated in the survey, of whom 3987 gave their follow-up consent.

Outcome measures
Several outcome measures as educational aspirations, completion/non-completion of upper secondary school (age 18-21), completion/non-completion of tertiary education (age 19-23) and not in education, employment or training (NEET) (age 23-25).

Logistic regression for the multivariable analyses of tendencies and associations.

Gender differences in the educational trajectories, and further in training and employment were associated with residency, socio-economic status and health.

To address outcomes in an educational, work and welfare perspective, which can add new and extended understanding and knowledge of multicultural youth in Arctic Norway.
