This report synthesises findings from the Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) programme’s midline data collection in Ethiopia, which took place in late 2019/ early 2020 (prior to the pandemic and the conflict in Tigray), to explore patterns in Ethiopian adolescents’ psychosocial well-being. Paying careful attention to similarities and differences between groups of adolescents and youth with different characteristics – girls and boys, those living in cities versus those in rural areas, those living in different regions (Afar, Amhara and Oromia), and those who are especially vulnerable due to disability, child marriage or displacement – we investigate how young people’s personal and social resources interact to support their happiness and satisfaction with life.
