India’s ailing labour market threatens the fragile optimism that underpins the nation’s aspirations. Urgent action in required to create a more job-rich economy that harnesses the productive potential of India's population and raises living standards for all.
To further this critical policy imperative, the JustJobs Network, with support from the Azim Premji University, has developed a JustJobs Index (JJI) – a comprehensive, data-driven tool to measure the quantity and quality of jobs – at the state level in India. This index, the first of its kind to measure both the quantity and quality of jobs, broadens the discourse on employment beyond the incomplete metric of unemployment. The report analyzes the factors driving state-level rankings.
Center for Policy Research and the JustJobs Network invite you to the launch of this innovative tool on 21 June, 2019 at the India International Centre in Delhi. We hope you will join us.
