Study Description In all industrialized countries the youth phase of life is in rapid transition. Due to economic, social, and cultural changes, the conditions under which the transition from the social status of "child" to the social status of "adult" is accomplished have been radically altered within the past century. This study examines the question of what subjective stresses and strains youths experience are the result of a youth's family life, school life, and leisure activities. Here, the psychosocial effects and consequences of the social detachment process of young people from their parents, the academic performance-based profiling processes in general education, and the diverse social integration problems in regards to free time (mainly mediated via the peer group) was studied in 1,143 German and 957 Polish youths.
Results of the youth surveys (in German and Polish) showed that psychosocial pressures, which are, in both countries, structurally related to the developmental phase of adolescence, follow similar social laws and have largely comparable total effects (see Mansel, Hurrelmann, & Wlodarek, 1991).
Primary data of the study, including the associated codebook, are provided.
