The proportion of unemployment problem in Bangladesh has gone beyond bounds. There are various forms and causes of the unemployment problem in Bangladesh.

In addition, steps should be taken to increase our national income to the maximum and distribute it equitably. But all attempts will be fruitless if the population is not kept within reasonable limit
