An analysis of the Periodic Labour Force Survey 2020–21 highlights the impact of COVID-19 on the labour market.

The fourth annual report of the Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) for 2020–21 of the National Statis­tical Office (NSO), in the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) was released on 14 June 2022. The PLFS gives the estimates of the emp­loyment and unemployment situation in the country. The first report, based on the 2017–18 survey data, was launched in 2019, and since then, it gives the estimates on key employment and unemployment indicators (namely worker population ratio [WPR], labour force participation rate [LFPR], and une­mploy­ment rate) on usual status and subsidiary status (US+SS) and current weekly status (CWS) annually for both rural and urban areas and also on quarterly basis for the urban areas only.
