Kerala jobless rate 3 times the national average

  1. Context: At 7.4 per cent, Kerala has the highest rate of unemployment among the major States in the country, says the Economic Review
  2. It puts Kerala’s unemployment rate at three times the national level (2.3 per cent)
  3. Other States: only tiny Nagaland and Tripura have a higher unemployment rate
  4. Scope: Rate is higher in rural areas as compared to urban areas
  5. What about Women? Feminisation of joblessness is evident with females accounting for a much higher rate of joblessness as compared to males
  6. The situation is worse in the case of Kerala women, who log an unemployment rate of 47.4 per cent, as compared to 9.7 per cent of men
