The study carries out EngleGranger co-integration Approach and employment elasticity formula to capture the impact ofeconomic growth on employment. The results of the study show that overall employmentelasticity of growth in Pakistan for the study period is 0.45 which suggests that economicgrowth in Pakistan is employment creating. Co integration results are also consistent withresults calculated through former method. The study concludes that economic growth inPakistan between 1981 and 2015 acted as catalyst to create labor market at large.
