Abstract

This article investigates the importance of the early educational and labor market career for nest leaving and for returning to the parental home. Using unique individual life course data for the entire Swedish cohort born in 1973, the article shows that employment means a high probability of nest leaving and stability of independent living. University studies mean a high probability of nest leaving but less stability of independent living. Those neither employed nor pursuing an education had both low probabilities of nest leaving and less stability of independent living. The early career was more important for structuring women's nest leaving than men's nest leaving.
