Regard statistique sur la jeunesse

Regard statistique sur la jeunesse

Based on the most recent data, this report presents a statistical overview of the current situation and trends over the past 15 years of the population of young Québecers 15 to 29 years of age. Seven major topics are explored – demography; the labour market and entrepreneurship; education; health; finances; culture and internet use; social and civic engagement, criminality and foreign travel.

The report presents a series of indicators selected in collaboration with the Secrétariat à la jeunesse (Youth Secretariat). Given the availability of the data, the statistical portrait covers the lives of young Québecers from 1996 to the present. Most of the data are shown according to sex and age group. Some regional data appear in various sections or the appendix. The goal of this statistical overview is to inform on topics raised by the Secrétariat à la jeunesse. It is also addressed to various stakeholders interested in up-to-date statistics on Québec teenagers and young adults.
