I can tell you've not spent much time around young kids from inner city barrios.
Yes some of what you mentioned does apply however there is a lot more at play than someone just being lazy.
Band-aids work well for cuts and bruises not gun shots.
That 32 % though .. I am wondering how many are Females ?
I am guessing the Females have completely skewed the percentage # .
One thing I learned a long time ago, Stats can easily be manipulated ,especially percentages .

For starters I'm guessing 100% all the working ladies in Sosua and every other City where they ply their trade
fit directly into that Demographic , that's just for starters .


I would hate to think that 30% of all Young Dominican MALES , Have no Job, and just hang out at the Corner looking to score and rob people .
but I am on the same page , its a huge problem . The numbers are definitely up.

Direct result of keeping schools closed. The numbers were about half that prior to all the fear mongering. Good luck with fixing it. Job well done stupid. (not you but they get my point)

La pandemia provocó que más jóvenes dominicanos se convirtieran en “ninis”

[Google translation from Spanish]

The pandemic caused more young Dominicans to become "ninis"

While the Dominican Republic fought so that the young "ninis", those who neither study nor work, were fewer every day, the pandemic caused them to increase significantly.

The total of these young people between 2013 and 2019 went up and down from one year to the next, but the difference did not remain so marked.

For example, according to statistics from the National Labor Force Survey (ENFT) of the Central Bank, in 2013 there were 403,230 "ninis", of which 150,692 were men and 252,538 were women.

In 2014 this figure dropped to 372,427 young people who neither studied nor worked, being 124,635 men and 247,792.

In 2015, the number of "ninis" rose again. In that year, the number reached 403,667 young people and in 2016, it dropped again to 377,809.

In 2017, the number increased by 29.22% compared to 2016, reaching 488,223 "ninis". In 2018 it increased to 475,169 and a year later, only four young people became "ninis", so there were then a total of 475,173 in the country.

However, with the pandemic this situation worsened. When comparing 2020 with the previous year, the "ninis" increased 44.24%, with a total of 685,615 young people between the ages of 15 and 24 who were neither studying nor working.

Of these, 281,337 were men and 404,278 women, increasing the number of "nini" girls much more.
