Analysis of early school leaving in Spain

The Ivie has carried out this research which aim has been, on the one hand, to assess the effects of the Territorial Cooperation Programme for the Reduction of Early School Leaving and, on the other, to analyze the recent evolution and current situation of early school leaving in Spain based on the data from the Labor Force and Wage Structure Surveys and the Foundation Bancaja-Ivie’s Observatory of Young People’s Transition to the Labor Market. As a result, two reports have been produced that examine the evolution of the school dropout rates in Spain, the main features of the people who leave school early and their subsequent employment situation. In particular the following aspects have been examined: the determinants of dropout and their influence on it; the negative effect for the individual who does not continue studies in terms of the probability of finding a job, having or not a temporary contract, or in terms of wage; the potential long-term effects on productivity and on the temporary employment, unemployment and participation rates under different hypothetical scenarios for the reduction of early school leaving; and the likelihood of early school leaving in relation to the determining variables included in the programme as well as personal and family variables of the young, and those related to environment.
