White British men are among the hardest hit when it comes to finding a job a decade after being unemployed, research has found.

Dr Carolina Zuccotti and Professor Jacqueline O’Reilly, of the University of Brighton’s Business School, analyzed England and Wales census data on 57,385 people who were aged 16 to 29 in 2001 to study the long-term effects of unemployment on young people of different ethnicities.

Of white British young people who were not in work or in education in 2001, only 59 percent of men and 50 percent of women were employed in 2011. In contrast, more than 93 percent of men and around 85 percent of women who were studying or working in 2001 had a job in 2011.
