Bangladesh has both the boon and the bane of an enormous demographic dividend.  

Employment-related challenges of its youth population, one of the largest in the world, has only recently come into the sustained spotlight and the ULAB Center for Enterprise and Society has dedicated an infograph series to highlight said challenges.

Whilst in Infograph 1, CES considered data from the World Bank Bangladesh Tertiary Education Sector Review, in this sequel, a wide variety of sources are considered including BBS, BANBEIS, and CPD.

The rural-urban breakdown of graduate unemployment and average monthly salaries are considered, as are female participation in university education and rate of 'Not in Education, Employment and Training (NEET)' among Bangladeshi graduates.

Largest areas of skill gaps of graduates, with regard to employer perceptions, lie in English and Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
