Through systematically analyzing the earlier labour force surveys, it is evident that the female participation rate in the labour force in Pakistan is one of the lowest worldwide. In the labour force survey 1996-97 informal sector activities had been included for the first time, the crude labour force participation rate for women in urban areas was only 59%,30 with 53.3% of the urban female workforce being engaged in the formal sector activities (Government of Pakistan 1998d).31

30 The crude labour force participation rate is defined as the percentage of the persons in labour force in respect to the total population. The refined labour force participation rate, which is 8.4% for women in Pakistan, is defined as the percentage of persons in the labour force in respect to the population 10 years of age and above.

31 In the Labour Force survey 1994-95, which does not include informal activities, the labour force participation rate for women was 4.97 % (Government of Pakistan 1998b).

Anmerkungen

The wording is as in Mirza (1999), but nothing has been marked as a citation.

"only 5.9%" in the original text becomes "only 59%" in Af. The other number given by Af does not match either - however it is to be interpreted.

Neither is there a "Government of Pakistan, 1998a" nor a "Government of Pakistan, 1998c" in Af's references.
