Summary and main recommendations
The current economic downturn has brought about a worsening in the labour market performance of Danish youth. In the year to the third quarter 2009, the unemployment rate of youth aged 15‐24 rose by 2.7 percentage points to 11.4% according to the labour force survey. However, the youth unemployment rate in Denmark is still well below the corresponding OECD average (17.6%) and even below the levels observed in many other OECD countries before the crisis.
