Almost 36% of young people in Brazil do not study or work, shows OECD report

Brazil has the second most young people aged 18 to 24 who do not study or work.

That is what a report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) released on Monday, October 3, says.

According to the study Education at a Glance 2022, 35.9% of Brazilians in this age group are not enrolled in educational institutions and do not perform any professional activity.

Brazil is second only to South Africa, where 46.2% of young people are in the same situation.

The study assessed the occupation of young people in 38 OECD member countries, including Brazil, Argentina, China, India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa.

The indicator considers that people aged 18 to 24 are transitioning from study to work and concludes that not having a professional activity can cause “long-lasting consequences, especially when the person experiences long periods of unemployment or inactivity.”
