Vodafone Institute Survey

Italians and Spanish very pessimistic about their future


43 percent of German survey respondents aged between 18 and 30 assume that they will have a better life than their parents´ generation. In Spain, only 29 percent of young adults have the same optimism about the future, and the figure for Italy is just 23 percent according to a survey by the Vodafone Institute for Society and Communications.

 The economic situa-tion in each of the countries strongly influenced the survey results. While young adults in Italy and Spain believe that digitisation will have a positive impact on their future and that it is one possible way out of unemployment, their counterparts in Germany show a stronger preference for traditional job categories. Although they believe that digitisation does offer opportunities, they do not believe that these opportunities apply to them.

In the crisis-hit countries of Spain and Italy these are the findings of the first Vodafone Institute Survey “Talking about a Revolution: Europe’s Young Generation on Their Opportunities in a Digitised World”.

The YouGov opinion research institute was commissioned by the Vodafone Institute for Society and Communications to conduct a survey of 6,000 young adults in the six European countries of Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the Czech Republic. It is the most comprehensive survey to date of this age group on the issues of the labour market, educa-tion and digitisation, and is representative for age, region and gender.

Spaniards and Italians showed the least confidence in finding a job in their own countries, while 58 percent of Spanish youths said they were planning to move abroad to find a job, compared with 21 percent of young Germans.

As for job prospects, only 40 percent of surveyed Spaniards thought they might find an occupation in keeping with their own studies and training, compared with 66 percent of Germans and 59 percent of British youths.

Working conditions also vary considerably from country to country. While 38 to 44 percent of youths in Germany, Britain and Czech Republic have full-time jobs, in Spain and Italy that figure drops to 20 and 18 percent, respectively.

Moreover, Spain and Italy also showed that young people there stay in school longer to make up for the lack of job opportunities: in Spain, 65 percent of those surveyed continued to study even though they felt they were ready to work.
