The declining presence of women in workforce accounts for a significant drop in overall labour participation rate
Asmaller share of India’s women works outside the home than in virtually any country in the world—only Pakistan and a clutch of countries in the Middle East and North Africa have lower shares. Just 39.5% of India’s women of prime working age between 25 and 54 were economically active in 2010 compared with 82% in China and 72% in Brazil. It is startling that only 24% women in prime working age have jobs in India’s cities compared with around 65% in urban China.
