Abstract

Unemployment among graduates is a serious phenomenon in Nigeria. It constitutes a problem not only for the graduates themselves, but to the overall social, political and economic structures of the country. The present study aimed at examining the causes and consequences of unemployment among the graduates in Kano metropolis. It also examines the reasons why some of them engaged in illicit activities. The role of government in eradicating this problem was also investigated. To ensure a comprehensive analysis of data, the study used a mixed method of data. This involved questionnaires and in-depth interviews administered to the unemployed graduates. Therefore, two hypotheses and four research questions were formulated to guide the study. A total of 217 respondents was utilised for the study and stratified random sampling was used to select the respondents. In addition to that, 10 participants were engaged in an interview and purposive sampling was used to select the participants. The questionnaire has a reliability coefficient of 0.80. The t-test at 0.05 level of significance was used in testing the null hypotheses. While thematic analyses were used for the interview. The findings of the study show that there is a significant relationship between unemployment and deviance. Unemployment among the respondents had both detrimental and beneficial effects on the unemployed graduates.
