Employment and Opportunity
- Over the period, this domain improved by just over 3%. That progress was driven by a 27% improvement in the ‘account’ score measuring youth access to a bank account or mobile money.
- The average score for adolescent fertility has increased by 3.4% reflecting fewer pregnancies before age 20.
- Levels of underemployment and shares of young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) have largely remained constant. Formal and full economic engagement of youth has not advanced.
- Seven of the top ranked Commonwealth countries in this domain were small states, including five Small Island Developing States (SIDS) – Singapore, Malta, New Zealand, Canada, Cyprus, Malaysia, Mauritius, Jamaica, Fiji, and the Solomon Islands.
