Question and answer
wht are the causes of unemployment in jamaica
* According to a 2008 UNICEF report, [ 41.7% of Jamaica’s poor are children; one of every four Jamaican children live in poverty. * Debt servicing continues to be the major cost to the country accounting for 54% of the budget or 54 cents of every dollar spent. Debt to GDP ratio remains very high, the fourth highest in the world, while rates of inflation have averaged almost 17% each
of the last two years, compared to about 6% in 2006 (OCA/UNICEF, 2009). This means Jamaica cannot afford to provide many of the social services its citizens need. Officially, Jamaica is ranked as a country of 'medium human development' on the United Nations' Human Development Index. Despite its progress on many accounts, Jamaica still suffers from economic and social disparities; problems that are felt most deeply by children and youth living in extremely poor urban and rural communities. For the families living in squatter settlements in inner-city Kingston or in isolated rural communities, high illiteracy, lack of employment skills and/or opportunities, insufficient income for basic food, education, or transportation lead into the cycle of poverty that in Jamaica can often become linked to crime or violence. According to the Jamaican National Youth Policy (2003), unemployment and education-related issues are the most critical concerns affecting young Jamaicans today ]
