Second TREE Conference 2013

Thursday, 28.11.2013

The conference is conceived as a platform for scientific exchange among researchers working with the TREE data or with other longitudinal survey data covering youth and young adulthood.

Beyond school-to-work transitions, the conference aims at exploring further dimensions of transition, e.g. leaving the parental home, family formation, health issues, values and attitudes, well‐being, and satisfaction. Cross-domain effects between the school-to-work dimension and other dimensions of transition during the 2nd and 3rd decade of the life course are of particular interest.
