Growth of Work Opportunities In India: 1983 â€“ 1999-2000
Against the backdrop of concerns about the slow down in the growth of total work force in the 1990s (relative to the 1980s) and of â€œjobless growthâ€, this paper offers a more nuanced assessment of the growth of different types of employment opportunities. This is done through an explicit focus on employment quality -- by reference to location of workers in non-poor households -- rather than simply focusing on the change in the number of workers. Also, based on a fresh assessment of the DGE and T estimates and NSS-Survey based estimates of organised sector employment, the 1990s are shown to be a period of accelerated growth in the number of regular wage/salaried workers rather than of stagnation or decline in the growth of jobs.
