    Abstract

    During the last decade, Iran has experienced a youth bulge . Today, the country is faced with an unprecedented growth and number of its young population, which has never occurred in Iran's social and demographic history. Currently, around one-third of the Iranian population is comprised of youth who are 15-29 years old. From a demographic standpoint, the period of youth is of special importance in comparison with other stages in the life course.
