The Youth Monitor keeps you up to date on the latest developments in the situation of young people in the Netherlands. It contains figures on the themes young people & families, health & welfare, education, labour and safety & justice.
In December 2022, net labour participation among young men exceeded the rate among young women. As of 2003, the year in which Statistics Netherlands (CBS) started measuring labour participation, it was higher among women aged 15 to 24 years than among their male peers. Last year, young men outstripped young women. This is evident from new labour force figures released by CBS.

On 1 January 2021, more than a third of all minors in single-parent households were living in a multi-dwelling unit (MDU), for example an apartment, ground floor unit or upstairs unit. This share is three times larger than among children staying with both their parents. Forty percent of the approximately 3.2 million children living at home lived in a terraced house. In very highly urbanised municipalities, 42 percent of local minors lived in an MDU. Statistics Netherlands (CBS) reports this on the basis of a new survey as part of the National Youth Monitor.
