Youth Unemployment 2015

Map No.


Youth unemployment is a global problem, with developing and developed countries being affected alike. With 66 per cent Bosnia and Herzegovina has the highest rate of people aged 18 to 24 being without regular employment, followed by several countries where almost half of the Youth is unemployed: among others South Africa, Libya, Namibia, Macedonia, Spain, Greece and Yemen.

On the other end are Qatar, Cambodia and Ethiopia, where less than 1 per cent of the young generation is without employment.

Data sources
This map uses data by UN Human Development Report (last accessed March 2018). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.

Further notes on the data, as well as all modifications to the original data source are noted in our data sheets. Data for this map will soon be available as a download.
