Youth unemployment

22 Jul 2011, by in Economics

I have a post at Left Foot Forward, looking at today’s article about Explaining the relationship between unemployment rates and inactivity in young people, published by the Office for National Statistics.

More and more young people are staying on in full-time education, and this may be making the increase in youth unemployment rates look worse than it really is. Even when this is taken into account, however, young people are still more likely to be unemployed than other groups and there are still good reasons to worry about youth unemployment.

    We recently created an illustration of Youth Unemployment over the last decade. Comparing it to seats in the Premier League (as the Prince’s Trust did) proved quite interesting.
