The Prince’s Trust has published its eighth Youth Index, based on a survey of 2,215 16–25 year-olds that gauges their wellbeing across a range of areas from family life to physical health. Key findings include:

• More than one in ten (16 percent) think their life will amount to nothing, no matter how hard they try
• A fifth of young people (18 percent) do not think they have the ability to change their circumstances if they want to
• The situation is even worse for NEET young people, who are more likely to feel worried about their circumstances and future
• 34 percent of young people think they will have a worse standard of living than their parents
• 42 percent of young people feel traditional goals like owning a house or getting a steady job is unrealistic
