Unemployment is a person who does not work at all, looking for work or job seekers who are trying to find decent work. The number of workers
causes unemployment, and the number of jobs is not balanced, technological progress, skills and experience are not following the criteria, lack of
education, poverty, capital market competition, difficulties in finding job vacancies, and expectations for prospective workers are too high. The data used are empirical data that is data that contains information on the results of observations or experiments taken from the Central Statistics Agency
on open unemployment according to the highest level of education from 2010 - 2018 with the level of unschooled, not / not yet graduating from Elementary, Elementary, Junior High School, Senior High School, Vocational High School, Academy / Diploma, and University use the TOPSIS and
Entropy approach that will weigh the data presented and rank the highest up to the lowest of these data by knowing the results obtained from the data presented can give view and solution to reduce unemployment in Indonesia.
