NEETs’ family socioeconomic background, economic deprivation, level of parental education along with the parental interest in the child’s education are strong predictors of becoming NEET. Furthermore, young people having one or both parents unemployed and with a low household income are more likely to become NEET than others. Having parents who experienced unemployment increases the probability of being NEET by 17%. Additionally, those with parents with a low level of education are up to 1.5 times more likely to be NEET than those young people whose parents have a secondary level of education and up to 2 times more likely than those whose parents have a tertiary level of education.
