What is the relation between occupational structure and development?



Answer to be written in the exam:

  • The development of a country is related to the occupational structure of a country as more the percentage of the population is involved in primary activities, it can be seen that the country is less developed.

  • A less developed country is one where a higher proportion of people work in primary industries including agriculture, animal husbandry, forestry, and fisheries.

  • In nations where people transition into secondary occupations like manufacturing, we observe increased development.

  • A highly developed nation is one where a high proportion of people work in tertiary occupations like banking, commerce, transportation, and administration.
