A pioneer Geographic effort towards the Study of unemployment and underemployment, the book addresses itself to the Rural Scenario of the relatively most progressive and prosperous Indian state of Punjab. The twin problem of unemployment and underemployment is viewed as exceptionally grave here since it represents a tangible denial of economic opportunity to a dynamic and enterprising community. Based essentially on primary data, the discussion traverses through the spectrum of various spatial scales. Identifying the global, national and subnational Context of unemployment/underemployment, it moves onto their detailed exposition at the regional, local, Household and individual levels. The analysis densifies as it descends from the macrocosm to the microcosm. Has the Green Revolution eased the unemployment/underemployment situation in Punjab? Are the spatial patterns of enemployment/underemployment related to those of development level? To what extent do the unemployment/underemployment rates differ by Population size and location of a village? What is the Differential incidence of unemployment/underemployment by households when classified by their organisation, Caste or occupation? How do the unemployed and the underemployed compare in their personal attributes and Job aspirations? These are among the many questions which this book tends to look into. The current Policies and programmes for generation of Employment are critically reviewed and found inadequate. Alternative strategies capable of Creating additional Demand for Labour simultaneous with exercising a check over its Supply are recommended. Both in Diagnostic and prescriptive terms, the book should be of great interest to academicians, planners, decision makers and administrators.
