The paper is based on a study financed by the Danish National Consumer Agency (Forbrugerstyrelsen)and was carried out during 2002-2003. In broad lines, the objective of the research was to explore young people's consumer competences in a new life stage situation, i.e., when they establish their own households. Consumer socialization theories constitute the theoretical background, and consumer competences were studied using previous notions of "desirable consumer socialization" as guidelines. Furthermore, the young consumers' own representations of consumer competences were explored.
