We study the distribution and evolution of rotational periods in field solar‐type stars, using the light curves (LCs) produced by CoRoT. The large number of CoRoT targets at our disposal allows us to perform this study on a statistically representative sample, and therefore to investigate the statistics of variability (i.e. flares, starspots) in stellar samples differing for example in terms of activity, age and mass, and focusing, in particular, on the analysis of the young population’s properties in the solar neighbourhood. This work is based on a CoRoT additional program (P.I. Fabio Favata).
