MOSCOW, January 14 (Sputnik) — Over 50 percent of unemployed young people in the United Kingdom feel anxiety when facing daily life problems, the latest report of British youth charity Prince's Trust Macquarie shows.
NEET is an acronym for young people aged between 16 and 25, who are not in employment, education or training. The term is widely used in the United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Spain and Mexico.
The Prince's Trust Macquarie Youth Index 2015 report revealed that jobless youths in Britain are socially isolated, in particular 46 percent of unemployed young people avoid making new acquaintances and about 40 percent can hardly "make eye contact with people".
About six out of 10 unemployed people interviewed said their anxiety caused them to experience sleep disturbances, while 51 percent of NEETs could not find the strength to look for a job, the Prince's Trust survey revealed.
In total about 2,265 young Britons took part in a poll, carried out by the Prince's Trust in November and December 2014.
