Abstract (EN)The purpose of this paper is to assess the phenomenon of NEET, identify the key factors that drive the probability to belong to this category and explore targeting measures. In fact, due to low rate of youth unemployment and the precariousness of their status in the labor market over the past years, an increasing interest for the analysis of the worrying situation of this category of young people who are neither in education, employment, or training (NEET) is arising. A binomial model, based on the Senegalese household data (ESPS 2), is used to identify the key determinants of NEET status. The results show that the about 4 per 10 young people are under NEET status. The key factors which significantly affect the probability to belong to the NEET’s category are the existence of a physical and mental disability for a young person, residence in rural areas for a young, the youth gender, youth education, the head of household activity. Therefore, it is important to put in place a targeting approach in order to reduce the proportion of young NEET persons among the population by setting in place high labor intensive programs.
