Women make up only 10% of Delhi’s workforce
NEW DELHI: For a city that is upwardly mobile and, one presumes, provides equal work opportunities to women, this comes as a shocker: They comprise just 9.4% of the city's total workforce. In other others, 5.40 lakh of 57 lakh working Delhiites are women.
Equally skewed is the percentage of the city's women who are employed: A paltry 6.78. Not surprisingly, the number of women in the labour force for every 1,000 men is 155 in rural Delhi and 110 in the urban belt.
These figures were revealed by the Employment and Unemployment Status in Delhi 2011-2012 report, released by the state government on Friday.
星期五政府公布的'德里2011 - 2012就业、失业状况报告'披露了这些数字。
The unemployment rate among men in went up since the last report of 2009-2010 — from 67 per 1,000 rural Delhiite to 104 and. For their urban counterparts, the figure is up from 30 to 39. Joblessness also went up among urban women — up from 31 to 92.
男性中失业比率自上次2009 - 2010年报告以来上升了 - 德里乡村地区从每1000人中67人升至104人，城市地区相应人数从30升为39。城区妇女中失业率也有上升 - 从31升至92。
According to the report, which shows Delhi's population at 1.71 crore, 33.39% of its people are employed. A whopping 1.11 crore Delhiites are 'out of the labour force' or not available for work. The report defines this segment as "infants, students, persons engaged in domestic duties, pensioners and other dependent on remittances".
In rural areas, just 21% of the population is employed. In fact, the city's rural unemployment rate of 74 is fourth from the bottom among all states and Union territories, only ahead of Nagaland, Tripura and Lakshadweep.
More than half of the city's unemployed people have completed schooling. Of the 2.66 lakh unemployed persons in the city, 59.17% are those who have completed their higher secondary education or more while 32.31% are those who have cleared primary, middle or secondary school.
Of the approximately 57 lakh strong work force in Delhi, 39.05% were self-employed, 55.35% were salaried persons while the remaining 5.60% were engaged in miscellaneous work. Both rural and urban centres showed a similar trend. Interestingly, more women were salaried compared to men. Where 37.19% women were self employed, 57.59% were salaried. Compared to this, 39.25% men were self-employed while 55.11% had regular salaried jobs. Among households, 52.39% were found engaged in salaried jobs while 36.78% households had primary income from self employment. In rural areas, 40.75% households were estimated as having self employment as the major source of income under agriculture and non-agriculture activities.
Services formed the largest segment of household industries at 26%. Others included manufacturing at 22.36%, trade at 17.61%, construction activity at 9.52%, transport and storage at 8.96% information and communication at 4.59%, accommodation and food services at 3.73% and electricity at 1.51%.

productivity from female employee is just 10%, hence 10% workforce more than sufficient.

Gender equality is far from reality.
Women face discrimination plus the fear of modesty violation in delhi.
Poor women get pumped by unknown persons in delhi,so they dont want to go out of home to work.
