Neither working nor studying: Youth "NEET" rates in the European Union, 2000-10

Of particular concern are young people who are neither in employment nor in education or training – known by the acronym NEET in many countries, “disconnected youth” in the United States and “ni-ni” (neither-nor) in Spanish-speaking countries.

Neither working nor studying, more than 6 million youth around the world have essentially given up looking for a job according to the ILO report "Global Employment Trends for Youth 2012".
