Abstract

The paper deals with the specificities in the development of the unemployment of the schools graduates and the minors in the Czech Republic. Firstly, the authors analyze the size of this group of the unemployed and its share in the total unemployment. Through statistical data they demonstrate both the decrease in the total unemployment and the decrease in the unemployment of this chosen group. The data document a faster decrease in the unemployment of graduates in comparison with the decrease of the total unemployment. Then, the authors focuse on the specific features of the unemployment of school graduates and minors development. The data analyzed show a cyclical development of the unemployment within this group with the peaks in September and the minimums in May. The data also document a contradictory development in relation to the total unemployment. In the selected periods the unemployment of graduates decreases in contrast to the growth of the total unemployment or vice versa, the unemployment of graduates increases despite the decrease in the total unemployment. The authors also analyze the social structure of this group of the unemployed. The data show that a higher level of the acquired education enhances chances for a job acquirement. At the same time they emphasize the growth in demand for graduates with the vocational certificate compared to the graduates of the secondary schools. In principle, the group of graduates with basic education and without education remains absolutely unchanged. Owing to the decrease in the total unemployment its share has been rapidly growing. The next topic of this article is the analysis of the number of unemployed within the graduates in the view of financial crisis. This analysis shows, that graduates with some level of education have higher chance to get a job than the graduates without education, even in the context of financial crisis.
