Abstract: Fundamentally for this paper, the disadvantages of youth unemployment may not be just temporary, but may have longer-term impacts. Considerable evidence suggests that being unemployed when young leads to a higher likelihood of long-term ‘scarring’ in later life in terms of lower pay, high unemployment, fewer life chances and poorer health[1]. There may also be considerable costs to the public purse as recurrent unemployment due to scarring is expensive in terms of reduced taxation and higher welfare payments. This paper seeks to set out some issues concerning scarring that may be of interest to policy makers. doi:10.1093/eurpub/cku005. DOI : 10.13140/RG.2.1.1300.4964
