The Youth Employment Problem--Dimensions, Causes and Consequences. Research on Youth Employment and Employability Development. Youth Knowledge Development Report 2.9.
Freeman, Richard B.; And Others
This collection of papers on the youth employment problem consists of 15 papers that cover the dimensions, causes, and consequences of youth unemployment and that also focus on problems in measuring the extent of the problem, the dynamic aspects of youth labor force participation, and problems associated with adequately assessing the consequences of youth labor market experiences. Included among those topics discussed are teenage unemployment, the youth labor market problem in the United States, and the relationship of labor market turnover to youth unemployment. The reasons for differences among rates of youth labor force activity across surveys are analyzed. Also examined are time series in youth joblessness, economic determinants of geographics and individual variation in the labor market position of youth, and the dynamics of youth unemployment. The effects of family, dead-end jobs, minimum wage and job turnover, and high school preparation and early labor force experience on youth employment are described. Compared next is the extent of youth unemployment in Britain and the United States. The effects of teenage unemployment on the individual and the employment and wage consequences of teenage women's nonemployment are also investigated. (MN)
