  • 2. StatisticsVital Stats Stats SA 280 000 (2013) Adcorp 600 000 (2011) Number of unemployed graduates in South Africa Does it really matter which is the correct statistic? The key issue is what are institutions, department of labour and government doing about it? If these statistics are correct, there’s an exponentially high increase of 42% in 2 years – could this be the results of the economic recession? 1. Stats SA, labour force survey, 2009 2. Adcorp’s Loane Sharp, 2011 Graduate Unemployment in South Africa
