Just as a low level of education is a significant indicator of unemployment, so is youth. The older the age group, the lower the rate of unemployment.
Recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that while the number of unemployed people who are 16 to 19 years old is relatively small, the current unemployment rate is about 24 percent, well above the national average of 9 percent.
