Evaluierung der Aktivität
The empirical analysis is based on data collected in April-May 2010, from among Tallinn municipal school students. An Internet survey was used to collect the data. The total population consisted of all 5th, 8th and 11th grade students of Tallinn municipal schools; the students were aged 11-18 years. A cluster sampling procedure was used: all municipal schools were included in the sample and in step one, each of them picked at random one class from among all its 5th, 8th and 11th grade classes; in step two, all pupils in the selected class filled out an online questionnaire during one school lesson. Filling in the questionnaire was arranged by a school employee.

Possessing future educational and/ or professional plans; Focus was on possessing such plans, not on the specific content of the plans. However, the original indicator included a list of possible educational and professional options, plus response options such as ‘have not thought about it yet’ and ‘do not know’. The responses were later collapsed into two categories.
‘Have not thought about it yet’ or ‘do not know’ = 0; Indication of educational or professional preference = 1.
