Abstract In recent years, Brazil has combined strong economic performance with consistently falling unemployment rates. Despite this, young people in Brazil face significant labour market difficulties: they are over three times more likely to be unemployed than adults; the proportion of youth neither in employment, nor in education or training (NEET) is higher than in OECD countries; a very large portion of the unemployed have been out of a job for a year or more; the quality of jobs held by youth is often poor; job turnover high; and strong inequalities persist along gender, geographical and racial lines.
