Youth is an important stratum of the population in terms of the life stages they are going through (end of schooling, household formation, entry into the job market) and the influence that their actions, choices and lifestyles have on the economy, culture, the environment and politics. In exchange, the life prospects available to young people are also largely determined by the economy and society in which they are taking their place.
