This chapter discusses the method and research design, and some of the methodological problems, in the project. The research investigates the outcome of long-term unemployment among youth. There are various methodological problems in comparative research. However, the attrition analyses conducted for the countries involved showed that, all in all, the material is well balanced and that there is no need to correct skewness. However, the Scottish and Italian cluster samples are difficult to assess because they are not representative samples.

Keywords:   research design, methodological problems, long-term unemployment, youth, comparative research
