A correlation analysis showed close linkages among the three concepts indicating a potential impact of GI and the two dependable variables; JS & JM. Path analysis has supported both the hypotheses. The first result of the study concluded a definitive impact of gender inequality on the job dissatisfaction levels of female employees. These results of the survey from Indian perspective converge with the findings of Channar (2011) who conducted their study on the public and private sector of Pakistan. However, the results of this study also suggest that JS and JM are dependent on job characteristics and its non-fulfillment cause deterioration in JS (Miner-Rubino & Cortina, 2006) as well as JM (Islam & Ismail, 2008)
This index was designed to capture women’s disadvantage in three dimensions- reproductive health, empowerment and economic activity. It reflects the loss in achievement due to inequality between men and women. An index of 0 implies that both the genders fare equally in all three select dimensions, whereas an index of 1 implies complete inequality. This paper examines the shortcomings of the existing GII and suggests an alternative choice of variables, functional forms and methodology to construct a gender inequality index in the context of Asia Pacific. The choice of countries is constrained by data paucity.

In this case, the labor market in Charleston will be tracked and presented to provide evidence of how traffic congestion has impacted the region’s labor market. Considering the assumption that traffic congestion makes employees to spend valuable time on the road and use resources, these losses must be reflected on the labor market graph. This is because the graph compares wage rate to quality of labor, which is affected by the time the employee spends on the job. To bring this into perspective, the study can consider using a comparative region that does not experience traffic congestion so as to illustrate the differing patterns of performance between the two labor markets. Based on this analogy, this graph will provide critical information about how the labor market is affected by traffic congestion in
