2018 Special report – Audit compendium on youth unemployment and the integration of young people into the labour market

Jun 28, 2018

Deutschland- und Europaflagge

EU Member SAIs and the European Court of Auditors individually conducted audit missions on how young people could be placed in jobs or apprenticeships in a more effective way. The various audit findings of the work across the EU have been complied in an audit compendium. The EU and its Member States have accommodated the recommendations made by the auditors.

The EU and its Member States have made some initial progress in fighting youth unemployment. For example, in the Member States that were most affected (Greece, Italy and Spain), the rate of unemployed young people between 15 and 24 years decreased by up to 11 per cent in 2016 against its peak in 2013. In 2016, the EU-wide youth unemployment rate reached 18.7 per cent which is still twice as high as the overall unemployment rate. Germany was the Member State with the lowest youth unemployment rate of 7 per cent.

The audit compendium serves as pilot project to provide the (expert) public with concise information on EU member SAIs’ audit and follow-up work done to strengthen the proper and efficient use of public funds. The audit compendium is available in the official EU languages at: https://www.eca.europa.eu/sites/cc/Lists/CCDocuments/CC_AUDIT_COMPENDIUM/CC-AUDIT_COMPENDIUM_EN.pdf
