The Myanmar Labour Force: Growth and Change, 1973-83
About the publication
During 1963-83, the population of Myanmar underwent dramatic changes. Population growth accelerated, as a consequence of which the labour force grew during 1973-83. Changes in the patterns of labour force activity were dominated by the increase in participation of women and decrease in men. This book investigates the relationships between population growth, labour force participation and the size of the labour force in Myanmar using the statistical yields of the two nation-wide censuses of 1973 and 1983.
