Unemployment among young people is a growing problem for many countries around the world. Research has revealed negative health effects for unemployed persons as well as reduced chances to work later on in life,implying not only individual suffering, but increased burdens on welfare systems and productivity loss for many years. In our 15-year follow-up study, performed on longitudinal Swedish register data, we have revealed associations between unemployment and future unemployment, sickness absence, disability pension, and death. Educational attainment mitigated the risk; immigrant status did not affect risk.
