The latest PLFS data for Jan-March quarter of 2024 has been released

Gujarat has reason to cheer, if the latest unemployment data is considered. It is one of the three states in the country which recorded unemployment in single digits at 9% in the 15-29 age group in urban areas.

This is according to the latest Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) released by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MOSPI) for the Jan-March quarter of 2024.

Delhi topped the charts with Delhi (3.1%) while Haryana was third (9.5%). The other two states among the five with low joblessness rates were Karnataka (11.5%) and Madhya Pradesh (12.1%).

Kerala had the highest unemployment rate among the 22 states and UTs surveyed. J&K, Telangana, Rajasthan and Odisha had the highest unemployment rates, the survey showed.

Overall joblessness rate

Overall joblessness rate for the period for this category was at 17%, higher than the 16.5% in the Oct-Dec period and marginally below the 17.3% in Jan-March 2023.

Joblessness rate for all age groups for the Jan-March quarter of 2024 has been estimated at 6.7%, slightly higher than the 6.5% in the Oct-Dec quarter but marginally below the 6.8% in the Jan-March quarter of 2023.

Double-digit unemployment rate has been a problem for the 15-29 age group for some time. It spiked during the COVID period. The data also showed that the unemployment rate for women was the highest in J&K at 48.6%, followed by Kerala (46.6%).

The overall female unemployment rate in Jan-March quarter was at 22.7%, marginally higher than the 22.5% in the Oct-Dec period and slightly lower than 22.9% in Jan-March 2023.
