Abstract

The age structure of the active rural population constantly deteriorated in the last decade, with significant influences on the innovating capacity of the labour recruitment pool. The analysis of the interest in education by rural population’s age groups reveals a contradictory evolution in the case of the rural young generation. Unfortunately, the young people (under 35 years) are becoming less and less interested in graduating secondary and higher education levels than older generations. In the period 1996-2012, the number of rural people aged 25-34 years who graduated a low educational level practically doubled, the share of this educational category in total rural population from the above-mentioned age group reaching 42%. In this way, the young population risks to endanger its access opportunities and active involvement in the labour market. In these conditions, the chance for the Romanian rural youth to become a factor for building the socio-economic resilience at the level of rural areas is problematic.
