The 2008 economic crisis and subsequent austerity policies have had profoundly damaging impacts for young adults across Europe in ways which threaten to seriously undermine their capacity to make successful transitions to adult independence.Nevertheless, reliable evidence on youth living standards and living conditions in the wake of these cataclysmic events has been scarce.This chapter provides new evidence on the nature, extent and social distribution of vulnerability to poverty and social exclusion amongst young adults in the UK. The work described here updates earlier analyses of the 1999 PSE-GB study using a comparable methodology. The chapter therefore examines trends in poverty and wider forms of social exclusion for young adults over the 1999-2012 period.These data reveal a dramatic increase in youth material and social deprivation over this period and, using a range of different measures, a rise in the extent of youth poverty which requires urgent policy action.
