Estimation on Unemployment

The number of job seekers on the Live Register of Employment Exchanges is often taken as an indicator of the level of unemployment in the country.

The number of job seekers, all of whom may not be necessarily unemployed registered with employment exchanges as on 30-09-2011 was 401.02 lakh in rural and urban areas taken together.

Reliable estimates of employment and unemployment are obtained through quinquennial labour force surveys conducted by National Sample Survey Office. Last such survey was conducted during 2009-10. Based on the results of these surveys, unemployment rate is estimated on Usual Status Basis and Current Daily Status Basis.

Quinquennial labour force surveys on employment and unemployment are conducted by National Sample Survey Office once in every five years. Labour Bureau under Ministry of Labour & Employment, Govt. of India has conducted first annual household survey on employment and unemployment in 300 districts covering 28 States/UT’s in the country for the period 2009-10. Second household survey for 2010-11 on employment and unemployment is in progress.

This information was given by the Minister of Labour and Employment Shri Mallikarjun Kharge in reply in reply to a written question in the Lok Sabha today.
