IRAN - In a shocking and a dreadful report by the Center for Census and Statistics in Iran, more than 110,000 PHD graduates are currently unemployed in Iran. The report reveals that according to this census during the 2014 working year the unemployed individuals among the university graduates in Iran with master’s degree have been much greater than other sectors of the working force. The report says that the majority of the unemployed graduates are women.
The majority of the unemployed graduates during 2014 have been in the field of engineering followed by business and architecture.
The Center for Census and Statistics had previously announced that the official rate of unemployment during 2015 was %10.9. But even this number was manipulated and not the actual number, because according to the government’s definition for employment, even if a person works 1 hour per week, he would be considered employed, so he would not be included in the official unemployment figure.
