Unemployment and Poverty: Is There a Conflict between Policies to Tackle the Two?
The object of this paper is first to present certain economy-wide statewise and regionwise cross-sectional empirical results concerning measures of unemployment and their relation to crucial economic parameters. (Section II, A and B). This is followed by a brief summary of the macroeconomic results based on time-series (Section II, C). Three sets of results are background to some intensive examination of the relation between poverty and unemployment (Sections III to VII). Fortunately, cross-sectional regionwise and statewise information covering almost the entire country is available to test certain hypotheses in this connection. The statistical techniques of correlation and regression, simple and multivariate are employed subject to the usual limitations.
