This research was conducted to investigate “effects of
unemployment on Computer Education graduate in Ovia North East in Benin City,
Edo State. In the course of carrying out the work, the researcher looked at the
type of unemployment, some of which include frictional unemployment, seasonal
unemployment, cyclical unemployment and residual unemployment. The researcher
also focuses her attention on reviewing related literature. More so, it was
revealed that some of the causes of unemployment are too many for Computer
Education graduates seeking jobs. Irrelevance of the course studies, the
movement of people from rural areas to urban areas. However, some
recommendations were made in the closing chapter among which are; Government
should restructure our education system to suit the demands of the society,
Government should make agriculture more attractive, Good development plan,
finally, government should provide necessary infrastructure to prevent the
rural-urban migration, if these are provided by the government, it will help to
reduce unemployment rate to an extent.

OF THE STUDY
The rate at which unemployed
computer education graduates in Edo State roam the street without job has began
to draw the attention of everybody. One would begin to wonder as to the causes
of these ugly trends or further still the influence it has on the economy of
Edo State. In the course of this research, it is important to know the meaning
of the concept of ‘unemployment’ in order to do justice to the causes and
effects of unemployment on computer education graduates. Unemployment is a
condition or situation whereby persons capable and willing to work are unable
to get paid employment. In any economy, there are many people perhaps even most
of the population who do not have paid jobs because they are nursing babies or
looking after their families. Unemployment refers to those who are involuntary
without work, those who want jobs but cannot find them.
It is never possible to
have 100% employment in any economy, hence the following types of unemployment
may be found. Frictional unemployment: This consists of workers in the process of
moving from one job to another, who show up in the unemployment figure at any
particular time. Structural unemployment: These are physically, mentally and
intellectually healthy people who cannot find them. It is this structural
unemployment that the researcher of this thesis is concerned about.
Unemployables: These are people with physical or mental handicap, which means
that although they would like to work, there is no work, which they are able to
do. Normal or transitional unemployment: This occurs when people change their
jobs, that is, people merely desire to change or move to a different part of
the country for better jobs prospect. Cyclical unemployment: This term refers
to the alternate booms and slumps in the level of industry activity. Visible unemployment:
This is the existence of a large number of people who do not have work and who
are dearly looking for work. Invisible unemployment: This on the other hand is
a situation whereby people are not looking but they are not looking for work
because they feel that there are no employment opportunities for them.
The problems of unemployment
date back to the 1930s, even before the great world economic depression. In
Nigeria, specifically, Edo State by the year 1960, school leavers secured jobs
with relative ease, skilled labour was scared and difficult to come by and it
was the employers who looked for them instead of the other way round as it is
now. However, it must be emphasized that this research is concerned with the
unemployables frictional unemployment. But what this author is researching into
the effect and pattern of visible supply deficiency and structurally unemployed
computer education graduates in Edo State.
The magnitude of the effect of
unemployment is difficult to determine because Edo State is plaque with
insufficient statistical data and records.
The problems of unemployment on
computer education graduates are growing at an alarming rate because of the
high population passing out of our college and universities on a yearly basis.
Computer education graduates come out from the college of education without
hope of getting employed in the state. This has led to the study of the causes
and effect and possible solution to computer education graduates unemployment
problems in Benin City particularly and Nigeria in general.
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The objectives of the study are
Examine the cause and nature of unemployment among computer education graduates
Examine the effects of unemployment on computer education graduates in Benin
Recommend possible solutions to the identified problems of unemployment among
this group of graduates, which can aid in reducing the effects.
What are the major factors responsible for unemployment?
What are the problems encountered as a result of being unemployed?
Does unemployment lead to health problems?
What are the effects of unemployment to the family?
What is the statistic of the unemployed on Ovia North East Local Government
OF THE STUDY
This research was will be
useful to the federal government, local government, tertiary institutions,
students and general public.
Since the causes and effect of
unemployment has been identified and enumerated, it is hoped that the state
government will undoubtedly tackle it and accelerate economic development in
SCOPE OF THE
The scope of this project work
embraces the whole nation but for the purpose of being specific, this study
also focuses on the causes and effect of unemployment on computer education

Visible unemployment: This
refers to the association of a large number of people who do not have work and
who are dearly looking for job.
