Reliable estimates of employment and unemployment are obtained through quinquennial labour force surveys conducted by National Sample Survey Office (NSSO). Last such quinquennial labour force survey was conducted during 2009-10. As per results of the most recent survey, 15.6 per cent, 33.5 per cent and 51.0 per cent of the total work force on usual status basis was found to be engaged in regular wage/salaried work, casual labour and self employment respectively during 2009-10.
