From to , the labor force participation rate of to year-olds fell 3. In previous work , we have shown that declining labor force participation among young people contributed substantially to this decline. In this analysis, we describe how teenagers 16—year-olds have shifted away from working or seeking work and the impact this shift has had on the aggregate labor force participation rate. While declining summer employment is part of the story, the bulk of the teenage reduction in labor force participation comes from fewer teenagers being jointly enrolled in school and participating in the labor force during the academic year. We find that—despite the low teen share of the working-age population 8 percent —if teens had still participated in the labor force at their rates, aggregate 16—year-old participation would be more than 1. Many factors are at play in the decline of teen labor force participation, including increased school enrollment , seasonal employment , decreased returns to work, reduced demand for low-wage work , minimum wage hikes , and competition from older workers or immigrants.
