OECD Employment figures: Age or education?

by on September 16, 2011

The OECD Employment Outlook 2011 compares the UK to the OECD region as a whole. It makes comparisons not just between countries but between different groups of workers on the basis of gender, education and age.

It’s interesting to note the way in which the age groups are divided and labelled: Youth (15-24); Prime-age (25-54); and Old-age (55-64).

Although there are differences in employment rate changes between ‘Youth’ and ‘Old-age’ groups, the biggest divergence in the UK is between the high- and low-educated groups.
