Inclusive Education for Disadvantaged Young People in Europe

Youth unemployment rates are generally much higher than unemployment rates for all ages

The youth unemployment rate in the EU-27 was around twice as high as the rate for the total population throughout the last decade. The EU-27 youth unemployment rate was systematically higher than in the euro area between 2000 and early 2008; since this date, these two rates were very close […], until mid-2010, when the EU-27 youth unemployment rate started to increase more strongly than that of the EA-17. While youth unemployment thus increased in both areas during the crisis, the increase has been more relevant for the EU-27, despite the lower overall unemployment rate in that area.” (source: http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/statistics_explained/index.php/Unemployment_statistics)
