PAULINO, Daniele de Souza; DUTRA-THOME, Luciana  and  BENDASSOLLI, Pedro F.. Adulthood and the neet phenomenon: gender, education and labor market. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2021, vol.22, n.1, pp. 1-15. ISSN 1984-7270.

The present study aimed to investigate the factors related to the neither-nor condition among young people in the light of the concept of emerging adulthood and the transformations that occurred in the world of work. The sample consisted of 224 young people who neither study nor work. The instruments were a sociodemographic questionnaire and two open questions about why young people are not studying and working, and about their future prospects. Answers from open questions were submitted to textual statistics. The results revealed that young people in the neither-nor condition experience typical aspects of emerging adulthood, and that these experiences are crossed by aspects such as gender, education, previous work experience, the precariousness of the labor market and the way it is affects youth in particular.

Keywords : youth; work; education; developmental psychology; emerging adulthood.
