Youth unemployment across Europe

Here is more, hat tip goes to Greg Ip.

Addendum: Do read the excellent comment by Peter Whiteford, for instance:

The unemployment ratio – that is, the number of unemployed people over the population rather than the labor force is arguably a more consistent indicator across countries.

Have a look at,_2008-2011Q3,_%28%25%29.png&filetimestamp=20120127135533

This shows that while in Greece for example, the unemployment rate for youth was around 46% the unemployment ratio was around 10% – nearly half of those in the labour force were unemployed, but only a little over 20% of all the people in the age group were in the labour force.
