An Analysis of the Social Wellbeing of Youth in Turkey Based on the “2017 Global Youth Wellbeing Index”

Hülya EkerEsra Burcu Sağlam

Social wellbeing is critical in assessing the social status of the youth and revealing both their opportunities and problems. The ‘2017 Global Youth Wellbeing Index’ (GYWI) is an international index explaining the social wellbeing status of the youth of different countries in terms of ‘civil participation’, ‘economic opportunities’, ‘education’, ‘health’, ‘information and communication technologies’, ‘safety and security’, and ‘gender equality’. In the current study, the social wellbeing of the youth in Turkey was analyzed on the basis of the data related to the specified domains of this index. Aiming to reveal a view of the social wellbeing of the youth in Turkey, the social wellbeing of young people was compared using the ‘2017 GYWI,’ and the data in the current national statistics database in Turkey (Turkish Statistical Institute [TurkStat], 2020, 2021). This comparison places a sociological emphasis on the urgent need for a general social wellbeing indexing of the youth. The indexing on the social wellbeing of young people reveals in which areas young people do not sufficiently benefit from the opportunities and resources of the society they live in. In this respect, the results of this study will guide social policies in related fields.
