New Delhi: In the run-up to the general election, lack of employment opportunities is seen by the Indian public as the biggest challenge, said a report.

The Pew Research Center report said that 76 per cent of adults have said that unemployment is a "very big problem and little has changed over the past year".

"In 2018, despite an estimated 3.5 per cent formal unemployment rate, 18.6 million Indians were jobless and another 393.7 million work in poor-quality jobs vulnerable to displacement, according to estimates by the International Labour Office," said the report.

It further added that inflation is another key concern for the Indians.

"Other aspects of the economy are also at the top of the public's concerns. More than 7-out of-10 (73 per cent) believe rising prices are a very big problem."
