Today's young people are well-educated ever but in a poor employment situation. At the beginning of this paper, I first state the situation both in the world and in China, revealing the poor employment situation of youth.

The purpose of this paper is to analyze employment of youth people in China especially among the medium and highly educated people and find which and how the factors contribute to it. By using the Logistic Regression by STATA, I find that the main factors are gender, age, living area, and political status, major and educational level.
