Abstract: [eng] The category of young people not in employment, education or training, often known by the acronym NEET, has become a target of public policies to combat the integration difficulties faced by young adults in different countries. However, the category remains heavily criticised due to the heterogeneity of the sub-populations that comprise it. Using the Enquête nationale sur les ressources des jeunes (National survey on the resources of young adults, ENRJ), this article addresses the diversity of NEET situations in relation to their risk of social exclusion. This risk is analysed through a multidimensional analysis taking into account their employment status, training, health and social relations. The results show that the risk factors are not exactly the same in each dimension, even though an absence of educational qualifications is very damaging in all four dimensions. They also underline the difficulty of putting into perspective the monetary resources of young adults in NEET situations with the risks of social exclusion.
