Toolkit: Addressing youth unemployment

Persistent high levels of unemployment, particularly youth unemployment, is one of the most important economic development challenges facing South Africa today. More than a quarter of the labour force are out of work and most of this unemployment is long-term.

Significantly, young people bear the brunt facing higher levels of unemployment than other age cohorts. In addition, the unemployment rate for females is higher than for males, a consistent trend across the different age cohorts.
