The Australian Youth Barometer gauges the pressures currently experienced by young Australians. For the second edition of the Youth Barometer, we again surveyed over 500 young Australians aged 18 to 24, and interviewed another thirty, on a range of topics including the economy and work, education, health and wellbeing, relationships, and civic participation. The findings affirm that young people generally are resilient and have a positive outlook for their future. However, challenges remain.
