Disconnected Youth: A Look at 16 to 24 Year Olds Who Are Not Working or In School Figure 2. Disconnected Rates Among Youth Ages 16-24, by Age Group, Sex, and Parental Status, 2014 Source: Congressional Research Service based on analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau 2014 Current Population Survey (CPS) Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC). Notes: Disconnected youth are youth who were not working or in school at the time of the survey and were reported as having not worked during the previous year for reasons other than going to school. Details may not sum to totals due to rounding. Race and Ethnicity Minority youth are generally more likely than their white peers to not be working or in school. 46 Figure 3 shows rates of disconnection by race and ethnicity, sex, and parental status for 2014. Black males had a substantially higher rate of disconnection than their white non-Hispanic or Hispanic male counterparts. The black male disconnection rate (13.1%) was nearly three times that of their white non-Hispanic counterparts (4.6%), and more than twice that of Hispanic males (5.3%). Similarly, black females also had a higher rate of disconnection than their white and Hispanic counterparts (8.6% compared to 5.4% and 7.0%). Being a parent is associated with disconnectedness among females, relative to males. Overall 2% of disconnected females and 0.3% of disconnected males were parenting in 2014. A greater share of disconnected black females and Hispanic females (3.6% and 3.2%, respectively) were parents, compared to 1.6% of white females. Females in general would have a lower rate of disconnection (4.1%) than males (5.6%) if parenting status did not play a role. By racial and ethnic group, this 46 Asian or Pacific Islander and Native Americans and Alaskan Natives are not included in this analysis; however, these groups are included in the “other” category of Table 1.

Disconnected Youth: A Look at 16 to 24 Year Olds Who Are Not Working or In School holds true for white females (3.8% compared to 4.5% of white males) and Hispanic females (3.8% compared to 4.9% of Hispanic males); however, even if parenting status is ignored, black disconnected black males were more likely to be disconnected than black females (11.9% versus 5.0%).

Details may not sum to totals due to rounding. Educational Attainment CRS evaluated the educational attainment of disconnected youth who were old enough to have completed high school relative to their connected peers, based on questions in the CPS about highest level of education completed. Youth ages 19 through 24 were grouped according to whether they (1) lacked a high school diploma or general education development (GED) certificate; (2) had a high school diploma or GED; or (3) graduated from high school and had additional schooling beyond high school. Higher educational attainment is associated with higher earnings, and earnings differences have grown over time among workers with different levels of Congressional Research Service 19
