What are the living standards of the young people in North Macedonia?

What are the living standards of the young people in North Macedonia? Which values are important to them and what do they fear the most in life? How do they spend their free time? How much do they trust the institutions, the politics and the European Union, and how much responsibility are they willing to take themselves?

These are some of the questions to which young Macedonians responded in the new empirical Youth Study North Macedonia 2018/2019 conducted by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation: in a representative sample 1.038 young people aged 14 to 29 were asked about their attitudes, doubts and expectations.

The study is the second youth study the Friedrich Ebert Foundation has conducted in North Macedonia, after the first one in 2013. It not only describes how youth in North Macedonia see their future, but also gives recommendations as to how the society at large should assist them and provide opportunities in the country. The youth study is part of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation's international youth research project, which involves 10 simultaneous national studies in Southeast Europe. The results of these 10 studies are analyzed in the comparative regional youth study.

The youth study is published on MacedonianAlbanian and English.
