The present study discusses the levels of workforce structure in Ahirwal region, which is a socio-cultural region laying in southern Haryana. For the study of workforce structure of this region, a composite index has been constructed with the help of seven indicators. The data related to workforce indicators have been collected from Census of India, Office of the Registrar General of India, for the period 1991, 2001 and 2011. The analysis brings out that the level of workforce development in Ahirwal region was not different from that of rest of state in 1991. But this region surged ahead of the rest of state average in 2001. By 2011 Ahirwal region was far ahead of the rest of state in terms of workforce development. However, there has been a significant interdistrict difference in this regard in Ahirwal region. Gurugram district has been quite ahead of Rewari and Mahendragarh districts in terms of workforce development.
