Selection of gender, age, level of education and other characteristics in the search
When you select your target group you can choose to filter your job effect search based on gender, age, level of education and other characteristics. When filtering a search, only the results for the selected target group and intervention will be included in the job effect searched.
If you don't actively choose to filter your target group, the search will automatically choose the standard filters. When this default is active the search will be based on study results including both genders ("Both men and women"), all age levels ("Young adults, adults and seniors") og without any specification for level of education ("Education not specified"). This is chosen as a default to limit the searches to primarily include the main conclusions from the entried studies and hereby avoid too many heterogenic effects from the same studies. The standard filter also ensures that the overall evidence overview is generalizable to the general population.
