Urban unemployment fell to 8.7% in Oct-Dec: NSO survey

Tags: Economy/Finance

According to the 13th quarterly periodic Labour force survey released by the National Statistical Office (NSO) on 6 May 2022 the unemployment rate for persons of 15 years and above in urban areas fell to 8.7 percent in October-December 2021 from 10.3 percent in October-December 2020.

Unemployment Rate is defined as the percentage of persons unemployed among the persons in the labour force.

Highlights of the 13th Periodic Labour Force Survey 

  • Joblessness was high in October-December in 2020 mainly due to the impact of the lockdown restrictions in the country, which were imposed to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
  • The unemployment rate among females (aged 15 years and above) in urban areas also declined to 10.5 percent in October-December 2021 from 13.1 percent a year ago. 
  • Among males, the unemployment rate in urban areas also dipped to 8.3 percent in October-December 2021 compared to 9.5 percent a year ago.
  • Labour force participation rate in CWS (current weekly status) in urban areas for persons 15 years of age and above remained unchanged at 47.3 percent in the October-December quarter of 2021, compared to the same period a year ago. 
  • WPR (in percent) in CWS in urban areas for persons of age 15 years and above stood at 43.2 percent in October-December 2021, up from 42.4 percent in the same period a year ago. 

Concept clearing 

The National Statistical Office (NSO) launched the Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) in April 2017.

The Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) gives estimates of Key employment and unemployment Indicators like the Labour Force Participation Rates (LFPR), Worker Population Ratio (WPR), Unemployment Rate (UR), etc.

  • Labour Force Participation Rate (LFPR): LFPR is defined as the percentage of persons in the labour force (i.e. working or seeking or available for work) in the population.
  • Worker Population Ratio (WPR): WPR is defined as the percentage of employed persons in the population.
  • Unemployment Rate (UR): UR is defined as the percentage of persons unemployed among the persons in the labour force.
  • In the CWS approach, a person is considered unemployed if he/she did not work even for one hour on any day during the week but sought or was available for work at least for one hour on any day during the period.
