Pakistan Employement Trends 2019 Report

“Pakistan Employment Trends” attempts to provide empirical prelude towards strategizing for “full, productive employment and decent work for all (vide 8th SDG, target 8.5). The document draws up employment trends on the basis of ten (10) key indicators derived mainly from LFS data. The select set of key indicators delineates the configuration of the labour market in Pakistan in order to help chalk up the range of desirable policy options.

Pakistan (previously, Federal) Bureau of Statistics (PBS) has been undertaking annual Labour Force Survey (LFS) since 1963 to quantify a range of labour force and related characteristics. This information provides reliable grounds to make a sketch of the current and evolving contours of employment scenario in the country.

The erstwhile Ministry of Labour and Manpower (MOL & MP) was making use of LFS data to carry out “periodic assessment of employment situation” in the country. In this connection a “Pakistan Employment Trends” report was produced within the ambit of a project initiative. Consequent upon the devolution of the aforementioned ministry, Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) took initiative to compile the document as a sequel to LFS report.
