Given the insufficient understanding of the role of employment and earnings as a linkage between growth and poverty reduction, especially in low income countries, this title provides inputs into the policy discussion on how to enhance poverty reduction through increased employment and earnings for given growth levels, in the case of Bangladesh. The study provides a background discussion of poverty, reform, and growth in Bangladesh, followed by an overview of the labor market: demography, the institutional structure of the labor market, and the labor market indicators. A poverty profile of the labor market is developed, including a discussion of the income sources and a decomposition of poverty reduction and growth. Other issues discussed include rural versus urban conditions; men, women, and children in the labor market; self-employment and household employment; and socioeconomic inequalities.
