This study was aimed to explore the impact of the relatively high rate of the long-term unemployment on the mental health and subjective well-being of young adults in Croatia. It was hypothesized that the prolonged jobless spell during early adult years would present a serious threat to the occupational identity development and result in a reduced life quality and increased symptoms of depression. Half of the sample consisted of 200 young adults who had been unemployed for 8.5 years on average (SD=4.02) ; the other half of consisted of 200 employed individuals that were matched to the unemployed group on gender, education, and marital status. Both groups completed a questionnaire containing measures of depression and subjective quality of life. The results showed that, compared to the group of employed, the unemployed participants were more depressive and less satisfied with a variety of life domains. The negative psychological impact of long-term unemployment was the most pronounced in male participants, which might be due to a relatively higher importance of the occupational identity for men than for women.
