This article uses the latest data from the Office for National Statistics’s (ONS’s) measures of young people’s wellbeing to explore how young people’s well-being and financial situation have changed. It focuses on their own “subjective” views about their financial situation and looks at how they relate to other factors such as their employment situation and accommodation. It examines recent changes (2009 to 2013) to see how young people’s views of their financial situation are changing since the economic downturn.
