Youth in the Eastern Cape Labour Market; Young people (15–34 years) make up 32% (2 125 226) of the population in the Eastern Cape province (Stats SA, 2019).

However, the large, and growing, number of unemployed young people undermines the demographic dividend. Future growth and prosperity of the province will be dependent on the lived experiences and actions of young people today. This reports provides an overview of the status of youth in the Eastern Cape province from 2014 to 2019 and beyond.
