Edited by Hans-Uwe Otto, Valerie Egdell, Jean-Michel Bonvin and Roland Atzmüller

Chapter 10: Contextual and individual determinants of involuntary jobs among young workers in Europe: a capability approach

Céline Goffette and Josiane Vero

Abstract

Using multilevel regressions, the chapter identifies individual and country-level determinants of involuntary jobs among young workers in Europe. First, descriptive statistics are used to compare the situation of various European countries regarding involuntary part-time and involuntary temporary employment rates of Europeans aged 15_24 in 2012. Second, the relative weight of individual and contextual levels (regional and national) of these involuntary situations is measured. Third, individual and contextual determinants are identified, including relevant macroeconomic and institutional factors. We use data from the European Union Labour Force Survey (LFS).
