Labour Market And Unemployment In Sudan

This paper examines the structure of labour market and unemployment in Sudan. One advantage of the analysis in this paper is that the authors explain several stylized facts on labour market using new secondary data on population, employment and unemployment based on Sudan Central Bureau of Statistics (2010) the Fifth Sudan Population and Housing Census (2008). An interesting element in the analysis is that they explain several stylized facts on the relation between structure of labour market and demographic structure, labour force, participation rates, economic activities, low skill level and high unemployment rate defined by gender, mode of living and main geographic areas in Sudan.
