Greek youth unemployment in February rose to 64.2 percent, the government's Elstat statistics agency said Thursday.
The overall jobless rate in the debt-choked euro zone member country climbed to 27 percent from a downwardly revised 26.7 percent in January. That compares with a 24 percent unemployment rate for the monetary union as a whole and Germany's best-in-class 7.6 percent unemployment rate.
Greece's 64.2 percent jobless rate covers youths ages 15 to 24.
