This North African nation has experienced ongoing, historically high youth unemployment rates, particularly in rural areas. A series of factors, including limited access to capital for young entrepreneurs and a lack of job matching programs, caused the rate to rise from 23 percent in 2010 to 31 percent in 2011.
