When it comes wages, obviously, the urbanites are paid more than their rural counterparts. However the intent of this survey was to mainly assess the impact of global financial crisis on the Indian economy. Women account for a small proportion of the formal Indian labor force, even though the number of female main workers has grown faster in recent years than that of their male counterparts. First, a person to be identified as unemployed on weekly status approach has to pass through a severe test, namely, he did not work even for only an hour in the whole reference week. Sectoral Growth The agricultural sector registered moderate growth as erratic monsoon in several parts and flooding in some states impacted performance.

Other investors thought the Fed would beef up its purchases if the economy falters. This is because both these approaches measure open unemployment in the country. However, was sluggish starting with Halloween retail sales. A good number of unemployment in a labour-surplus country such as India manifests itself in the form of disguised unemployment, especially in the agricultural sector.
On current daily status basis, in 2004-05 rate of unemployment rose to 8.

If population grows at a rapid rate then, to maintain the people even at their existing levels, large amounts of capital are needed which could otherwise have been used to raise the amount of capital available per man and hence to raise the living standards at a faster rate.
Since employment opportunities in the non-agricultural sector have not been growing rapidly, the new entrants to the workforce are compelled to remain in agriculture and perpetuate the phenomenon of disguised unemployment which means that people are engaged in occupations where their marginal productivity is zero if not negative and that a shift to alternative occupations will improve their marginal productivity and add to national income of the country. The basic solution to the problem of this sort is the faster rate of capital formation so as to enlarge employment opportunities.
