Abstract

The current research aims to examine the phenomenon of unemployment in Western Athens, since several historical, economic and other negative post-war factors contributed to the degradation of the region and the emergence of high unemployment rates. Unemployment in the region has always been a social phenomenon that has led many people to misery. After the economic crisis, and especially over the last ten years, it has multiplied, causing tragic consequences for the daily lives of the inhabitants. Therefore, it appears that due to the combination of the above factors (Degraded Area, Economic Crisis), unemployment in Western Athens is of particular interest for the purposes of the current study. With the aim to create policies and provide solutions in order to address the problem, it is essential firstly to analyze the profile of the unemployed. In order to achieve this, we will analyze their characteristics, such as the municipality they belong to, their gender, age, duration of unemployment, educational level and family status. Through this analysis, we will next attempt to identify specific patterns and categorize them and interpret them.
