What are young people doing in EU? The patterns of education and employment

According to a news release by Eurostat, statistical office of the EU, there are almost 90 million people aged 15-29, representing 17% of its population. So what are they busy from day to day?
In the 15-19 age group the vast majority of people in the EU were in education in 2015, the opposite is true for those aged 25-29: most of them were in employment. In-between, young people aged 20-24 were relatively evenly distributed between education and employment.
The worrying statistics follows. The proportion of young people neither in employment nor in education or training (NEET) increases considerably with age. The NEET rate, which stood at 6.3% for the age group 15-19 in 2015, almost tripled to 17.3% for the age group 20-24 and reached almost 1 young person in 5 aged 25-29 (19.7%).
