● Using Fast Frequency Household Survey Data to Estimate the Impact of Demonetisation on Employment

Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy Pvt. Ltd conducts a large longitudinal household survey, Consumer Pyramids Household Survey (CPHS). Since January 2016 it has been producing fast-frequency measures of unemployment by using the CPHS. This article attempts to understand the impact of demonetisation announced on 8 November 2016, if any, on employment by using the results from CPHS. We use data on two waves preceding demonetisation and two waves after demonetisation, that is, seven quarters3 before and 4 after demonetisationand also monthly and weekly data to understand the impact of demonetisation. The evidence indicates a substantial loss of jobs and labour participation after demonetisation.
