Resumen

While the youth labour market has improved considerably since 2014, one legacy of the recent economic crisis is the large cohort of long-term unemployed young people, which represents nearly one-third of jobless young people. This report provides an updated profile of the youth labour market in 2016 and describes trends over the past decade. It explores the determinants of long-term unemployment, at both sociodemographic and macroeconomic levels. It also provides evidence on the serious consequences for young people of spending a protracted time in unemployment, such as scarring effects on income and occupation and on several dimensions of young people’s well-being. The report concludes with a discussion of selected policy measures recently implemented by 10 Member States in order to prevent young people from becoming long-term unemployed or, if they are in such circumstances, to integrate them into the labour market or education. An executive summary is available - See Related content.

    Desempleo juvenil a largo plazo: características y respuestas normativas

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Aunque el mercado laboral joven ha mejorado considerablemente desde 2014, parte del legado de la reciente crisis económica es la amplia cohorte de gente joven desempleada a largo plazo, que representa cerca de un tercio de las personas jóvenes desempleadas. Este informe ofrece un perfil actualizado del mercado laboral juvenil en 2016 y describe las tendencias observadas durante la última década. Explora los determinantes del desempleo a largo plazo, tanto a nivel sociodemográfico como macroeconómico. Además, ofrece evidencias de las serias consecuencias que reviste para los jóvenes  permanecer largo tiempo desempleados, como pueden ser los efectos duraderos en los ingresos y el empleo, y en otras tantas dimensiones del bienestar de la población joven. Este informe concluye con un debate sobre las medidas normativas seleccionadas y ejecutadas recientemente por parte de 10 Estados miembros a fin de evitar que la gente joven permanezca desempleada a largo plazo o, en caso de encontrarse en dicha situación, integrarlos en el mercado laboral o dotarles de educación.
