Population, labour force and structure of employment and underemployment in the ECAFE region

Population figures offer a good starting point for a discussion of the ecology of unemployment. Population growth rates bear directly on the incidence of deprivation. What, for the farm community, which worked its land for 130 days a year, used to be grateful leisure becomes resentful underemployment when there are more mouths to feed off the same area of land. Moreover, the growth rates of those of working age directly determine the numbers of those competing for jobs in the modem wage sector.
