The study concludes that the total work participation rate in India in 1983, 1993-94 and in 2004-05 has remained same at 42 per cent. For rural workers it decreased by 0.5 percentage points and for urban workers it increased by 1.8 percentage points during post-reform period.Total male and female work participation rates during post-reform period have remained almost same whereas during pre-reform period increase in total FWPR was much higher than that of males. Male–female work participation gap at India level decreased by 6.3 percentage points during pre-reform period whereas in post-reform period it increased by 0.1 percentage points. At rural level it has decreased by 0.5 percentage points and at urban level increased by 1.7 percentage points during post-reform period. The annual compound growth rate of total employment decreased from 2.37 per cent during pre-reform period to 2.09 per cent during postreform period. During pre-reform period, annual compound growth rate for female employment was almost double to that of males. But in post-reform period , it declined to almost half and became equal to that of males.
