This study is the first data collection wave of the LOLYS (Longitudinal Lausanne Youth Study) at the University of Lausanne. The general aim of LOLYS is to assess experiences of vulnerability (e.g., stress, discrimination) and regulation strategies (e.g., identity, social support, collective action) of young adults aged 15 to 30 years living in French-speaking Switzerland. Generally, the survey aspires to provide an account of the regulatory strategies likely to decrease or to increase vulnerability among adolescents and young adults aged 16 to 30 years.
