DescriptionAn in-depth look at how disconnected youth are faring in America's cities, with data included on disconnected youth by state, congressional district, county, gender, and by race and ethnicity. Disconnected youth are teenagers and young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 who are neither working nor in school. There are 5,527,000 disconnected youth in America today, or one in seven young adults (13.8 percent)--about as many people as live in Minnesota. The national disconnected youth population is larger than the populations of thirty US states.
