Merkel to win in Germany?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Got a link for that as Statista tells us something else (and obviously harry used a different source).

    Here's the Statista link, their figures are different.

    Youth unemployment rate in EU countries 2017 | Statistic
     
  2. Germany's percentage, is easily manipulated and is done regularly. Put the unemployed onto courses run by private companies etc and voila, the rate goes down, as they are not unemployed, but rather, under training.
     
  3. Trading Economics

    Obviously there are more Ministry of Guesswork units around than first realised.
     
  4. One thing that strikes me is the way that the Trading Economics graph for Germany shows no changes when other sources say something else, makes you wonder how much of their figures are "projections".

    But "youth unemployment" is also a bit of a side issue, you get lots of nice figures but it doesn't tell the whole story.

    Look at this one, the long-term unemployed in the EU

    Unemployment - Long-term unemployment rate - OECD Data

    As per examples, Spain may have an umemployment rate of around 18% but when over half of those have been on the rock and roll for at least a year then there is a fundamental problem.
