Unemployment Rate in Pakistan
According to the Government of Pakistan the current unemployment rate in Pakistan is 7.82 % which can be considered excellent when we look at the figures for 1998 which were 19.68. But lets now see how the current government defines unemployment. The Government considers anyone over the age of 10 (This age is according to the government of Pakistan's website on statistics) working 1 hour a week (This is according to an opposition Parliamentarians debate on this years Budget with no objections from the treasurury benches so I'm assuming this is also correct) to be employed. That's shameful.
