Fawcett, Caroline; Hartwell, Ash; Israel, RonUSAIDEQUIP3Education Development Center, Inc. 2010

This report presents an analysis of existing data profiling the status of out-of-school youth in developing countries. The report points out the value and limitations of an existing data set--the Demographic and Health Surveys--administered in 75 countries every five years since 1984. The research is first of its kind, offering country statistical profiles that profiles out-of-school youth populations in cohorts by education, age, and gender, and maps the relationships between education, employment, health, and more that determine the status of out-of-school populations.
