NEETs around the World – The global NEET rate is estimated to have increased from 21.7 per cent to 22.4 per cent

Global concerns about the large numbers of young people who are neither in employment, education or training have led to the adoption of the NEET rate, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as an indicator of progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 8.6.

Evidence of progress to date is not very encouraging; between 2015, when the target was established, and 2020, the global NEET rate is estimated to have increased from 21.7 per cent to 22.4 per cent. Drawing upon 10 country studies, this brief examines the specificities of young people not in employment, education or training (NEET) in different country contexts.

It concludes with a number of policy implications aimed at building more effective policy responses, focussing on the substantial heterogeneity of NEETs as well as on the over-representation of young women in the group.
