Jobs, an informal reference to the employment or occupation of individuals, is a key metric to assess the health of an economy. The demand for jobs cuts across both rural and urban regions. In the latter, the jobs that are in demand are a mix of white and blue-collar jobs, whereas, the countryside offers jobs that are mostly related to farm labour. The demand for jobs also reflects the prevalent rate of unemployment in a country. A high unemployment rate reflects an increased demand for jobs. According to the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), the unemployment rate dropped to 6.57 percent in January 2022. This was the lowest since March 2021. The highest unemployment rate was recorded in Haryana, at 23.4 percent, as per the CMIE data for January, followed by 18.9 percent in Rajasthan. The lowest for the month was recorded in Telangana, at 0.7 percent. The lack of jobs, however, is not entirely encapsulated by the prevalent unemployment rate. The issue of underemployment also exists in an array of economies, where the highly educated individuals fail to secure jobs as per their calibre.
