Role statuses and transitions in adolescence and young adulthood: reflections and implications

The paper then moves to the findings of the analysis reported and their interpretation in context. The final sections discuss substantive and methodological issues raised by the research and finish with some conclusions about next steps in what needs to be a continuing comparative programme.
