The New, Longer Road to Adulthood: Schooling, Work, and Idleness among Rural Youth. Number 9
Snyder, Anastasia; McLaughlin, Diane; Coleman-Jensen, Alisha
Carsey Institute
This report focuses on the education and work experiences of rural youth during the emerging adult years (age 20 to 24), as they make the transition from adolescence to adulthood. It documents how rural emerging adults combine work and school and experience idleness, closely examines their educational attainment, and compares their experiences with those in central city and suburban areas. (Contains 10 figures and 5 tables.) [Additional funding for this paper was provided by a USDA/CSREES National Research Initiative grant.]
