The coun­tries with the most unemployed grad­u­ates

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Which coun­tries have work col­lege grad­u­ates?

Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent OECD re­port, the un­em­ploy­ment rate for peo­ple with a third level ed­u­ca­tion in Greece is just un­der 20%. In­deed, many of the coun­tries with the high­est rates of grad­u­ate un­em­ploy­ment across the world have been badly af­fected by the global financial cri­sis.

Spain also has a sig­nif­i­cant amount of unemployed grad­u­ates. The most re­cent fig­ure places it di­rectly be­hind Greece with an un­em­ploy­ment rate of 14.9%. Turkey rounds off the top three with 7.7% while Italy and Ire­land come fourth and fifth with 7 and 6.7%, re­spec­tively.

At the op­po­site end of the scale, 4.1% of US col­lege grad­u­ates are out of work, slightly ahead of Ja­pan’s rate of 3.2%. Nor­way has the low­est grad­u­ate un­em­ploy­ment rate of all OECD na­tions with just 1.8% of its third level ed­u­cated pop­u­la­tion unemployed. (Source: Statista)
