In Spain, like in other western countries, people with the highest levels of education are less likely to be unemployed. This inverse relationship between education and unemployment is particularly relevant for youth, as for most of them the educational level attained is the sole method of proving their abilities and knowledge in the employment market. Therefore, young people with lower educational levels suffer the greatest risk of unemployment. The situation of these young people is inflated in the rate of youth unemployment, which only considers youth active in the employment market, excluding youth still in the training stage. Given the situation of the transition of youth from education to the employment market, the various activities carried out by the members of this collective need to be considered in order to assess their situation. Some indicators supplementing the youth unemployment rate with a higher level of inclusion of the youth collective are the unemployment index, the NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) percentage, and the overall situation of youth.
