More than 112,000 young Swedish people between the ages of 16 to 25 were neither employed or in school during 2011, according to a report soon be released.

The report also pinpoints significant discrepancies in youth unemployment in different parts of the country, and warns that many unemployed youths may never enter the job market.

"We see large groups of youth who risk never establishing themselves on the job market, and that's why we have to take this seriously and do something about it," says Inger Ashing, acting director of the Swedish National Board of Youth Affairs.

The report was compiled by the Swedish National Labor Board, the National Board of Youth Affairs, and the National Board of Education, and will be published on July 1.
