Abstract

Economies with large labor population and labor oriented production face problems of quality of labor provided. This quality can be divided into two components; one the skill component and other the health component. The purpose of the paper is to identify the root causes of low health standards in the working population. The district wise data of Punjab (Pakistan), revealed that fertility rate, number of hospitals, literacy rate, and proxy income are the major determinants that can improve health rates among the population.
