Abstract: This paper aims to investigate recent employment trends in the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir with the help of some key employment indicators such as UR, LFPR, and WPR. Material and methods: The findings are based on the unit-level data of the PLFS over the period of 2017-18 to 2021-22. Results: The study highlights that the Labour Force Participation Rate (LFPR) in Jammu & Kashmir in 2021-22 remains high ( at 46.4%) compared to the northern states of Uttarakhand, Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, and all of India’s LFPR as well. The female LFPR in Jammu & Kashmir (at 34.1%) has also shown much better prospects compared to all India levels, which is exceptionally low at 24.8 per cent. Conclusions: A continuous improvement in female LFPR and WPR is recorded after the imposition of the President’s Rule in the state. High female WPR positively correlates with factors like a peaceful workplace, workplace security.
