The most commonly cited series measuring teenage unemployment is often misinterpreted or misused. This article discusses the sources of misunderstanding and examines the characteristics of teenage unemployment, focussing in particular on the educational status of teenagers. The conclusion is that it is not possible to encapsulate all the aspects of teenage unemployment in a single series and that alternative measures of teenage unemployment, which are more appropriate in assessing the extent of the problem and the nature of policy responses, are required.
