YouthSTATS is a global database on youth labour market indicators developed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) Programme on Youth Employment (YEP) and the interagency program Understanding Children's Work (UCW). The database, developed within the framework of the Work4Youth Project, is a response to the need for reliable statistics to inform policies on youth employment challenges worldwide. YouthSTATS provides indicators for people between 15 and 29 years of age on topics such as labor market status, working poverty, sector of employment and wages. The database is a work in progress so its content will be continuously expanded.
