|Consider the following statements:|
|1. Employment on usual status basis is estimated by National Sample Survey Organisation.|
|2. The usual status basis measures employment over a reference period of one week.|
|Choose the correct one:|
A) Only 1
B) Only 2
C) Both 1 and 2
D) neither 1 nor 2
Correct Answer: A
Solution :[a] The Usual Status approach to measuring unemployment uses a reference period of 365 days i.e. one year preceding the date of the survey of NSSO for measuring unemployment. The Usual Status approach of measuring unemployment also looks at the principal activity and subsidiary activity status of the worker. Thus the first step to estimate employment numbers and unemployment rate through this approach involves determination of the Principal usual activity status of the individual.
