A large census of the concerns of 18-24yo people across the nation. Could have some interesting information, my son showed me a table on the major concerns, he thought I would be interested to see that Climate Change only scored 5%
Housing affordability 28
Mental health 17
Unfair treat & discrim. 12
The economy 7
Climate change 5
Drugs and alcohol 4
I think it would be better to get the top five or something like that because that cohort is so Greenwashed that I cant believe that most of them don’t have a bee in their bonnet about warming and CO2.
In terms of immediate impact you can see the point of jobs and housing affordability although I would expect the housing issue to kick in more towards 30 or 40 when they leave home (a bit of sarc).
Such a small number for the state of the economy is a red flag, I suppose they see that as a distant abstract thing (like the climate?) compared with immediate concerns especially jobs. I would have expected jobs to be top by a wide margin, I suppose the housing affordability picks up some of that as a proxy. That is why asking for the top concern gives a distorted picture, maybe somewhere there is a point score for concerns to give more weight to the ones that are not No 1.
But mental health and unfair treatment? Truly a snowflake generation.
