This report focuses on one of the central problem of our country unemployment. When unemployment is high, resources are wasted and people's incomes are depressed; during such periods, economics distress also spills over to affect people's emotions and family lives. The socio economics system of Pakistan and institutions has failed to provide employment to the increasing labor force.

Subject of our report is unemployment. Purpose of selecting this topic is to give information to our fellow friends about one of the major problem which Pakistan is facing these days. In this report we tried our best to put a spot light on its major causes and its effects. The unemployment rate (10 years and over) in Pakistan was last reported at 5.7 percent in the second quarter of 2011.

Following are the limitations that we faces while conducting our research: •
