The sequence of steps in the analysis of youth trajectories

Jean-Pierre Fénelon, Yvette Grelet and Yvette Houzel

These meetings, the "Journées du Longitudinal", are organised by Céreq and the Institut du Longitudinal-Iresco (CNRS). The papers presented are published in Céreq's Documents series [1994, 1995, 1996, 1997].


The study of the school-to-work transition is based on longitudinal data, in the form of personal chronologies which require specific handling. Drawing on French research based on C'req's longitudinal surveys, this article presents the different options that emerge in the course of statistical processing and explores their respective implications and challenges.

Keywords: coding, trajectory, entry into working life, longitudinal, data analysis, transition
