Youth employment

Young people are defined by the United Nations as persons aged between 15 and 24 (inclusive); adults are those aged 25 and above. However, many countries apply definitions of youth which differ from the international standard.
 
For labor statistical purposes, youth employment-to-population ratio is the proportion of the youth population — persons aged 15 to 24 years — that is employed.
