The Success Sequence: New Research Findings
The “Success Sequence” refers to the concept of milestones a young person should complete in their life that are associated with greater economic self-sufficiency and family stability. These steps are most commonly understood as 1) finishing high school, 2) having a full-time job, and 3) waiting for marriage to have children. Up until now, a key part of the Success Sequence has been the order in which a young person achieves these milestones.
With funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Mathematica conducted an economic analysis of the Success Sequence steps to assess their actual benefits for young people.
Join us to discuss Mathematica’s findings about the Success Sequence including new thinking about the order of the milestones, what some alternative pathways may be for young people, and the significance of their order in creating economic self-sufficiency and family stability.
Objectives: Participants will be able to explain:
- The most common Success Sequence milestones and pathways youth complete by age 30 and their variation across gender, race, and socio-economic status.
- How the order of Success Sequence milestones is associated with economic self-sufficiency and family stability after age 30.
- How the new findings on the Success Sequence can inform programming for youth.
