Although the Colombian unemployment rate is nearly 10%, there are specific demographics with sharper numbers: In the case of women, this number ascends to 12%; in the case of the youth, to 16%; and in the case of handicapped people, to 70%, among others. Besides, this numbers are even more critical in specifics regions. For example, the unemployment rate for the young people of the Urabá region ascends to 45%.
