Global Employment Trends for Youth 2015

CoverThe ILO has published the report “Global Employment Trends for Youth 2015: Scaling up investments in decent jobs for youth.”

According to the study the global youth unemployment rate has stabilized at 13 per cent following a period of rapid increase between 2007 and 2010 but it is still well above the pre-crisis level of 11.7 per cent. For millions of young people around the world finding a decent job is still difficult.

The report highlights a drop in the number of unemployed youth to 73.3 million in 2014. That is 3.3 million less than the crisis peak of 76.6 million in 2009.

The Global Employment Trends for Youth 2015 report includes data from 30 school-to-work transition surveys (SWTS) from the Work4Youth project, a global partnership between the ILO and The MasterCard Foundation.
