Contrary to popular perception, unemployment among Muslims in both rural and urban areas is falling.
According to data released by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) on Friday, the rate declined from 2.3 per cent in 2004-05 to 1.9 per cent in 2009-10 among rural Muslims. The unemployment rate among urban Muslims fell from 4.1 per cent to 3.2 per cent during the five-year period.
India's unemployment rate should not be confused with that of advanced economies'. There is also the issue of "disguised unemployment" (when more people are hired than required, leaving some employees with no work) in sectors such as agriculture, and low employment in certain self-employed categories.
