Sažetak

The aim of the present study was to determine whether the
set of individual and family characteristics discriminates
between employed and unemployed young adults without
high school, and which of these characteristics contribute most to the discrimination between groups. The sample
comprised youth without high school diploma (school
dropouts) from 14 cities in the Republic of Croatia. Data on
individual (school competence, behavior in school, and
employment status) and family (parents’ education level,
frequency of contacts with parents, and the living standard of
family) characteristics of school dropouts were collected. The
results of the study confirm the initial expectation about
higher school achievement, higher living standard of the
family, and higher educated parents of employed school
dropouts in comparison to unemployed school dropouts.
Based on the set of individual and family characteristics it is
possible to discriminate between employed and unemployed
school dropouts, whereby the mother’s education level and
the living standard of family contribute most to the
discrimination between groups.
