national youth survey findings report

In 2017, the United States Agency for International Development Bosnia and Herzegovina Mission (USAID/BiH) commissioned IMPAQ International (IMPAQ), under the Monitoring and Evaluation Support Activity (MEASURE-BiH), to conduct the National Youth Survey in Bosnia and Herzegovina (NYS-BiH).

NYS-BiH provides insights into the state of BiH youth, examining their perceptions, attitudes, and experiences on relevant topics including education, employment, inter-ethnic relations, political and civic participation, and migration intentions. This report presents the main survey findings from NYS-BiH and information on the survey methodology.

The NYS-BiH was conducted in January and February of 2018 in partnership with Prism Research and Consulting. This survey collected data from three groups of respondents: 
  • Persons from 15 to 24 years of age - 2,000 respondents
  • Persons from 25 to 34 years of age - 1,500 respondents
  • Persons from 35 to 44 years of age - 1,000 respondents 


The analysis presented in this report is based on 3,002 respondents from 15 to 30 years old, as this age group corresponds to definitions of youth prescribed by the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) and Republika Srpska (RS) legal frameworks.
