The National Institute of Statistics and Information announced that approximately 15,918,900 Peruvians participated in the celebrations of Labor Day on Sunday, May 1st.
A survey was recently taken to examine the expansion in the working population in the past 5 years. It was discovered that the male working population increased by 6.5% and the female working population increased by 4.2%.
Particularly in urban areas, the working population has greatly increased. In fact, it expanded by 9.6%. On the other hand, rural areas did not see such a drastic increase. The working population decreased by 5.5% over the last five years.
Although some areas did not increase as much as people hoped, Peru has still grown in its working population, and continues to see growth in this area.
