These documents examine some of the impacts of the nation’s economic slowdown over the past fifteen years on the employment experiences of teens and young adults in the Metropolitan Los Angeles (Metro LA) region.
Using public use microdata files (PUMS) prepared from responses from Los Angeles households that participated in the monthly Current Population Survey, the reports examine the way in which the labor market behavior of teens and young adults has changed as employment growth in the region has slowed markedly.
