HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

This report is based on a survey of the historical and generational determinants of youth opportunity inequality and deprivation across different interconnected spheres of urban activity in five representative cities in four developing regions (Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean).

The survey results strongly suggest that the degree of outcome inequality (such as earnings and assets) that defines youth exclusion or inclusion in urban life is highly related to the unequal opportunities that occur in successive life stages.
