Employment and unemployment situation in India (July 2011 - June 2012)

This report is based on the employment and unemployment survey conducted in the 68th round of NSS during July 2011 to June 2012. The survey was spread over 12,737 FSUs (7,469 villages and 5,268 urban blocks) covering 1, 01,724 households (59,700 in rural areas and 42,024 in urban areas) and enumerating 4,56,999 persons (2, 80,763 in rural areas and 1,76,236 in urban areas). Four different estimates of the labour force indicators have been obtained based on the three approaches (viz. usual status approach, current weekly status approach and current daily status approach) adopted in the survey for classification of the population by activity statuses. These are termed as labour force indicators in usual status (ps) (i.e. usual status taking principal activity only), usual status (ps+ss) (i.e. usual status taking principal and subsidiary activities together), current weekly status (CWS) and current daily status (CDS).
