Features of Change in the Demographic Characteristics of the Structure of the Workforce in Kuwait during the Period of (2000 - 2013)

Auther : Maha S. Alfaraj Hamdy M. Badawi

There is a strong positive relationship between the rates of change in the structure of the workforce for any country and the economic development rates: the more rates of change in the components of the workforce and diversification, the more the economic development rates in the country. This study aims to shed light on some of the features of the change in the structure of the workforce in Kuwait between 2000 and 2013. The study showed that there is a significant positive change in a lot of manpower components, especially in the expatriate labor force as a result of the influx of mostly of working age (15-59 years) expatriate labor migrations. The study also showed that there was a significant increase in the workforce, especially of females in various economic activities, and that the economic development rates have not been able to absorb these increases, which resulted in a large increase in unemployment rates, especially among Kuwaitis of working age. Therefore, this study is considered as one of the important initiatives to support the short term and long term planning towards resolving all the problems caused by the increases of laborers in the workforce.
Keywords: Manpower, Labor force (Workforce), Economic activity, Divisions of occupations, Demographic characteristics, Unemployment rate, Dependency ratio, Rate of change.
