In 2022 a representative sample of people aged 18 to 29 in the Basque Country was asked about their perception of inequalities in rights and opportunities between different groups.
Young people think that inequalities based on wealth and origin are the most prominent. As they say, the inequilities in rights and opportunities between rich people and poor people and between locals and foreigners are greater than those between women and men, or between different age groups.
If we look at inequalities in rights and opportunities between young people and adults, we see that, in total, 60% of young people perceive that there are these types of inequalities in the Basque Country; specifically, 16% say they are very large and another 44% say they are quite large.
If we take into account together those who think that these intergenerational inequalities between young and adult people are very large or quite large, we see that women and people under the age of 25 are the ones who perceive these types of inequalities the most.
But young people are not the ones who perceive these inequalities between young and adult people the most; among 30-64 year olds the percentage of those who think that these types of inequalities are very large or quite large is somewhat higher than among young people.
Reduced inequalities is goal number 10 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals.
