analysis of overall trends in the structure of employment,
differentiated between men and women, between rural
and urban workers, and across different sectors. With
an emphasis on using age-cohort analysis, the dynamics
of change in the employment structure are elucidated.
The paper looks at changes in the overall size of
the labour force and in work participation rates between
1993–94 and 2011–12 and talks about changes in employment
structure across different industries as well as impact
of improvement in educational attainment on employment
conditions of young workers.
