The purpose of this survey was purely exploratory, i.e., to provide substantive generalizations without laying much claim to their statistical validation. The survey deals with Delhi's Urban Labour Market relating to working women in the formal component of the tertiary sector. This survey has derived much of its methodology from a survey of workers conducted for the London metropolis (Martin and Roberts, 1984). In addition to framing appropriate questions for working women in the formal sector in Delhi, the interviewer maintained a regular contact with the respondents since 1987. Informal discussions helped to redefine and reformulate questions pertaining to the work experience, working conditions, working history and the job search strategies as adopted by working women in the urban labour market Pre-testing also assisted in refining the approach adopted for the interview.
