Employment and Migration in Serbia
Serbia counts more than 800,000 young people between the ages of 15 and 24 – 52 per cent men and 48 per cent women – which is almost 18% of the overall working age population. These young Serbians face great labour market challenges. The employment rate for youth aged 15-24, just above 15 per cent, is three times lower than for the working-age population (47 per cent). With an unemployment rate reaching 46 per cent, the young generation is also more than twice as likely to be unemployed as the overall working-age population, which faces an unemployment rate of 20 per cent.
