Declines in New York City’s Out-of-School, Out-of-Work Young Adult Population ... But Numbers Remain High

Lazar Treschan, Irene Lew, JobsFirstNYC

Summary: This publication, led and commissioned by JobsFirstNYC and conducted by CSS researchers, is an initial analysis of new data on youth employment and school participation through the end of 2015. The document compares data from 2005, 2010, and 2015, to examine labor force and school enrollment trends across the past decade. The study shows marked declines in the number and share of young adults in New York City who are out of school and out of work (OSOW), though 17% of young adults ages 18 to 24 remain part of the OSOW population. JobsFirstNYC and CSS will be releasing a more comprehensive study about these changes and trends later in 2017.
