Unemployment rate

Unemployment in Cambodia has now reached 20 percent, according to the Cambodian Development

Resource Institute (CDRI), although the latest official government unemployment rate

from 2004 was only 0.8 percent. The majority of unemployment is in rural areas, said

Sok Sina, CDRI researcher, but youth unemployment is emerging as a major problem

with 12 percent of youths between 10 to 24 being unemployed. Research from the Economic

Institute of Cambodia said thousands of university graduates were unable to find

jobs.
