A sample of “young people with a migrant background” was defined and evaluated. This sample consisted of:
girls and boys with foreign citizenship (supplementary sample)
young people from the main sample, who, because of their parents’ origin, were identified as young people with a migrant background
Size of the main sample
Girls with German citizenship n = 1,456, parent interviews for this group: n = 1,190
Boys with German citizenship n = 1,354, parent interviews for this group: n = 942
Evaluation of the main sample, “German young people”, is based on girls and boys with German citizenship, regardless of a possible migrant background as a result of the parents’ origin, since this corresponds to the definition of the earlier surveys.
