Abstract:Youth unemployment is a serious concern to policy makers in many developing countries because of its multidimensional impact. In this connection, the paper attempts to characterize youth unemployment in Ethiopia and reveal its major determinants. Univariate results indicate that youth in general, which includes teenager youths and young adults, those living in urban centres like Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa, and those with primary and secondary education, as well as female youths face large unemployment spells. From the regression results, the author finds the prime age male unemployment rate to be a positive significant predictor of youth unemployment rates whereas demographic trends are found to be insignificant.
