  1. Notes. In column 1, the dependent variable is 1 if unemployed for at least a year and zero if employed or unemployed for less than a year. In column 2, the dependent variable is 1 if unemployed and zero if employed. Columns 3 and 4 follow the same rules, respectively, but the dataset is restricted to those aged 16-29. ISCED (International Standard Classification of Education) levels broadly correspond to: 0 = Pre-primary education; 1 = Primary education or first stage of basic education; 2= Lower secondary education or second stage of basic education; 3 = Upper secondary education; 4 = Post-secondary non-tertiary education; 5 = First stage of tertiary education and 6 = Second stage of tertiary education. So a higher ISCED number implies more education.
