National Journal: Demographic Analysis of American Residents Ages 16 to 24 Without a Job and Not Enrolled in School

The National Journal article is linked below.

National Journal: Young People Who are Unemployed and Not in School

"At Measure of America, we have charted the share of 16- to 24-year olds in the 25 most populous metro areas who are not working or enrolled in school; they are America's disconnected youth. Our latest report, 'Halve the Gap by 2030: Youth Disconnection in America's Cities,' shows that 5.8 million youth fit into this category. While youth disconnection is a national epidemic, our research reveals its disproportionate impact on young people of color."
