Educational outcomes are crucial for social participation and labor market opportunities. To develop strategies to improve people’s social and economic prospects, governments are increasingly interested in international comparisons of educational opportunities and outcomes. The workshop ‘Comparative Analysis of Longitudinal Data on Educational Outcomes’ aims to describe and discuss educational transitions and outcomes in Europe across the life course. To evaluate educational outcomes in different educational systems, this workshop focuses on the use of various longitudinal datasets, which are key in going beyond merely descriptive approaches and getting closer to causal analysis. Contributions with a focus on comparability of longitudinal datasets, statistical methods for harmonizing longitudinal datasets, and comparative analysis of longitudinal educational trajectories are especially welcome.

This expert workshop is targeted at experienced researchers. It is also open to other academics, policy professionals, and data users, and will provide participants with opportunities to discuss their projects and to network with international experts and colleagues in the field.
