Abstract

The aim of this paper is to test the relationship between unemployment and the effective factors in the Syrian Arab Republic (S. A. R.). For that, this paper will analyses the unemployment available data and use the cointegration method. The paper says that unemployment in S.A.R. is a structural problem and concentrates in young people and those who have recently entered the labour market, especially educated groups. There is a strong and fixed relation between worker productivity, capital accumulation per worker and terms of trade, and the unemployment rate on the other said. Finally, the paper suggests that the solution of the problem lies in enhancing the investment climate, increasing investment, improving the competitiveness of the Syrian goods.
