Unemployment is world’s fastest rising fear

Unemployment is the world’s fastest rising worry- a BBC World Service survey covering 11,000 people in 23 countries suggests.Unemployment is world's fastest rising fearThe annual poll, called The World Speaks, gave people a list of concerns and asked which they had discussed with friends or family in the past month.

Corruption and poverty still ranked the highest, but unemployment was mentioned by 18% – six times the rate citing it in the first survey in 2009.

The growth in concern was found across all countries surveyed, although corruption emerged as the most talked about global concern.

Nearly a quarter of those asked had discussed that topic in some form over the past four weeks.

High youth unemployment is one of the biggest problems confronting societies around the world, condemning whole generations to a life of much reduced income.

Concern about joblessness seemed to vary by country.

Top of the list was Spain, where 54% of those sampled said they had discussed unemployment recently, an increase of one-third on the previous year’s BBC poll.

Spain is at the heart of the debt crisis in the eurozone and has the highest youth unemployment in the region at greater than 40%.

Ghana, Mexico, Nigeria and Turkey were among the other countries where this topic appeared a particular concern, with a third or more of those sampled saying they had discussed the issue in the month before the survey.

But the latest results show considerable differences between countries in the issues people find important.

In the US, France and Japan – all wealthy, developed nations – the state of the world economy emerged as the main talking point.

In another group of developing countries, including China, Russia, Kenya and the Philippines, rising prices for food and energy were the main topic.
