Description: Out-of-school youth (OSY) did not attend day or night school, were not married, and were unemployed or employed informally. Some high school graduates were considered as OSY if they completed high school in or before the year 2000 (1992 EC) and fulfilled the other OSY specifications above. Since the age range (15-24 years) was too broad for a behavioral survey, this target group was subdivided into two narrower age groups, 15-19 and 20-24 years. OSY (equal numbers of males and females) was surveyed in all ten regions and Dire Dawa Administrative Council (AC). Due to limited resources, ISY (equal numbers of males and females) was surveyed only in the Amhara, Oromia, Somali, Harari and Addis Ababa regions and the Dire Dawa AC.
