Khoirun Nisa


Adolescence is a significant period starting with mental, emotional development and physical development; adolescents experience many problems due to unfulfilled levels of welfare subject. Because the level of youth welfare also measures the progress of a country, a country also has a responsibility to improve the welfare of its youth. For this reason, this study aims to find which adolescent welfare domain subjects need more attention. Research on youth welfare uses the bibliometric analysis method with the help of the VOS Viewer application system using the keyword "Wellbeing for youth" using the limitations of the type of journal articles in English that have been published in the last five years and obtained as many as 840 data with 114 keyword verifications. Used to visualize bibliometric maps.
