    Abstract

    Labour supply is a key element in socio-economic development, and although the size, growth and composition of population have a strong bearing on its supply in an economy, the actual labour supply is a function of the labour force participation rate defmed as the ratio of the population engaged in or seeking gainful employment to the working-age population. In Pakistan gainful employment means not only work for payor profit but also unpaid help from family members, and the working-age population refers to the group of those aged 10 years or more.
