The report was commissioned by Youth Action NSW. It presents an analysis of labour market outcomes for young adults in Western Sydney. The report identifies over twenty clusters in Western Sydney – two or three adjoining neighbourhoods in each case – where youth unemployment and disengagement are most intense. Typically each cluster contains around 300 unemployed youth and a further 300 young people who have become disengaged from both full time work and education and training.
