    Post Help! thanks!

    I was trying to look up this word in the dictionary but I didn't found anything so could you please tell what does all-time means? Well, I have the main idea of the word but I want a dictionary explanation.
    This is the whole sentense: "Youth activism levels are at all-time high."

    Thanks

    Context: Youth activism levels are at all-time high.

    Thanks
    It means "unprecedented". Youth activism levels are the highest in all time, ever. Often it is used for "a long-time high", or when the real "high" is forgotten or never measured.
