Youth Unemployment in South Africa: Infographic

This infographic is provided couteosy of the Development Policy Research Unit at UCT.
Youth unemployment is a big problem worldwide, and South Africa is no exception. While in South Africa unemployment is a major concern for people of all ages, youth aged 15 to 34 are more likely to be unemployed than individuals of any other age. Since 2011, unemployment has risen by 1.1 million South Africans, and 47% of these are youth. Even worse, this is not due simply to young, new labour force entrants – youth made up only 35% of labour force growth in the same period. Those aged 15 to 25 are particularly badly off, with employment amongst this group actually falling since 2011.
