the importance of urbanization in Pakistan and they tried to calculate that

the economic growth. Lastly, they also proposed that urbanization might turn

most of people still remain unemployed. It might be due to less employment
schemes and large scale operations, therefore she concluded that population
growth and GDP are main causes of unemployment in Pakistan.
