Labor Force Population By Sex and Employment Status, Year 2010

In 2010, almost 40% or 17,211 of the Municipality’s population belongs to the economically productive group (ages 15 years old and over). About 38% of the economically productive populations are employed(Figure 7). In terms of gender distribution, 35% or 3,721 of the employed populations are males and 42% females.  However, unemployment rate of the municipality is highly critical as 62% of the municipality’s 15 years old and over are not employed. Unemployed male dominates (65%) and females (57%). This unemployment rate is relatively high considering that population has been increasing fast over the ten-year period widening the base of the workforce.
