Approximately 15 percent of Russian youth aged 15 to 24 years are neither working nor studying is more than two million people. This is stated in the study of the Higher school of Economics (HSE), writes “Kommersant”.
Young people who are not engaged in work or education, belong to the group Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET). She, in turn, is divided into two categories: seeking work NEET unemployed and NEET inactive who are not interested in employment (this includes those who cannot work for health reasons or forced to care for relatives).
Less NEET-youth in large cities and Metropolitan areas, where there is access to education and work. For example, in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg 2000-2016 years, its share was from three to 11 percent. Because opportunities for self-realization there are more local young people are leaving the state faster NEET: unemployed, out 59 percent of the inactive 32 per cent.
In small settlements up to 2016 five to 14 per cent of the NEET-youth. Because finding work for them is harder then the status of NEET, leaving only 37 percent of the unemployed and 22 percent are inactive. While rural young people are more likely to leave the labour market NEET-inactivity.
