Quarterly Youth Unemployment Rates in Large Metro Areas, 2020-2021

Quarterly youth unemployment data from six large metro areas—Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, DC—show that youth unemployment increased rapidly in the second quarter of 2020. After a period of partial recovery, in 2021 youth unemployment rates were lower than they were in the beginning of the pandemic, however youth unemployment rates were still significantly higher than those in the same quarter in 2020.
