Abstract

This is the second report produced under the project "Manpower Survey and Establishment of Labour Market Information System" NAM/90/020. The Establishment Survey, the subject matter of this report, was conducted during October 1992 to July 1993. Being a pioneering attempt in the Namibian context, various problems have had to be addressed to realise the final outcome. Needless to mention that this was made possible by the inputs and efforts made by various persons of the Ministry of Labour and Human Resources Development (MLHRD). The 1991 Population and Housing Census provides the number of unemployed to be almost 100 thousand or 20% of the labour force. In addition, the Labour Force Sample Survey conducted in 1991, suggested a massive prevalence of underemployment in rural areas, particularly among females. The creation of employment opportunities to have a perceptible impact on the existing unemployment, would call for a search and assessment of potentials in all sectors of the economy, as well as influencing the choices of technology, projects and products through suitable policies. In addition, to encourage the promising sectors, such as fisheries and tourism, the employment situation requires development of other branches of the economy having prospects for job creation.
