In 2023, every tenth young person in the EU between the ages of 15 and 29, or 11.2%, was neither studying nor working, according to official Eurostat data. That's a 0.5% decrease since 2022.

In Bulgaria, the number of young people who neither studied nor worked in 2023 was 12%, and according to this indicator this country is fourth in the EU, and with a higher percentage only in Romania (19.3%) and Italy and Greece (15.2% each).

In 2013, the EU rate was 16.1%, and since then it has steadily declined except for the pandemic years of 2020 and 2021, when a rise was recorded to 13.8% and 13.1% , respectively, from 12.6% in 2019

In 2023, however, the number of young people neither working nor studying varied significantly among member states - from 4.8% in the Netherlands to 19.3% in Romania.

Reducing the number of young people out of work and out of school is one of the main objectives of the European Pillar of Social Rights, with the aim of reducing the rate to 9% by 2030.

Figures show that in 2023, a third of EU member states will have already met this target.
