Educated unemployed

Experimental visualization of narrower problems

Rather than accept work beneath his status, or employment in remote rural areas, the university graduate, and sometimes the secondary school leaver as well, may prefer to join the ranks of the unemployed. A sizeable quantity of unused human capital of this kind reflects a wasteful investment in human resource development and poses a serious threat to a country's social and political stability.


In less developed countries, high school graduates in great numbers are among the jobless, particularly in Asia.
