These data have been taken from the reports titled Youth Portraits, that the Sociological Survey Office of the Presidency of the Basque Government prepares on a yearly basis for the Basque Youth Observatory, and from the Basque Sociometer 68, that the Sociological Survey Office published in November 2018.
