This evidence briefing highlights the findings, and their relevance in key policy areas, of research which explored the use of longitudinal data in informing and shaping policies relating to employment and worklessness. Professor Paul Gregg (ESRC Centre for Market and Public Organisation) and Dr Emma Tominey used data from the National Child Development Survey to analyse the long-term 'scarring' effect of youth unemployment. They concluded that male youth unemployment has an impact on wages up to 20 years later. There is a large (13-21 per cent) and significant wage penalty at age 42 for being unemployed for over a year between age 16 and 23.
