Regional Determinants and the Situation of Youth in Regional Labour Markets

Beata Bal-Domańska


Strengthening the situation of youth in labour market is one of the key priorities of the EU employment policy, within the context of the Europe 2020 growth and jobs strategy. Regional markets offer young people different entry and functioning conditions in labour markets. They differ in economy structure and the model of youth employment (e.g. part-time or fulltime). Another element differentiating the situation of young people is the regional educational capital. The results of spatial analyses (Bal-Domańska, Sobczak, 2018) suggest the significance of education capital for the development of labour market available for young people. The main purpose of the study is to assess the relationship between the situation of youth in labour markets and the economy and labour market structure expressed as the level of regional educational capital (the part of human capital related to formal education and upgrading professional qualifications). The assessment of the relationship between the level of educational capital in a region and the situation of young people will be performed based on the estimation ofspatial econometric models. They allow statistical verification of the discussed correlations and the identification of educational capital factors which support, to the greatest extent, the favourable situation of young people in regional labour markets.
